That's one of those things thats "neat" but is just not cheap enough to be worth buying.

EDIT: Wow... what a rip off. These things are $350-$400! Go to walmart and buy their bottom of the barrel laptop and it'll be 20x the speed of this piece of crap, the screen will be twice as big, it'll actually have an OS on it that can be used for "stuff", and it'll cost just as much or LESS.

I would buy an eeepc for $100 if it had a touch screen, to act as a better "portable emulator" than my nintendo DS. Thats one quarter of the price, with a feature that it does not have.
Its an ultraportable, its tiny, try finding a laptop this small for under 1000$... Excluding games, Linux is 20x more useful than Windows, the apps are just as good, if not better, free ,and much more rapidly improved.

Anandtech did a review, seems like a lame product built on technology from about 5 years ago...

You shouldn't talk about the iPhone that way...oh, that's not what you were talking about?

But yeah, I'd expect at least 60spf with Crysis on that thing.

Don't laugh he's right. If the rest of the world ever realizes that and quickly adopted GNU/ Linux then a lot of devs will be scurring to fill in the niches that are left afterwards.

Ok, rather than turn this into a Windows vs. Linux thread, I'm just going to say "Wow 20x more useful? I never knew it was that many X's more useful. I'm switching ASAP."

As far as the PC itself, why would you want a laptop that has an incredibly small screen, very little power, no optical drives and at most 8Gb of storage space?

There are cell phones and PDAs capable of competing with this computer in the same price range if you are looking for an "ultra portable".

Other than the "wow its progressive because it uses Linux and its small" value, there is no reason to get something like this. Unless you're very very small and a 12" or 14" laptop is just too big.
