    So it's a whole PC? Can it be plugged into a desktop and used as a keyboard? Both?

    It's a 5 inch touchscreen, resolution of 800x480. Apparently it looks pretty sharp.

    I want to know this.

    If I can use it as a network machine to organise shares/traffic etc,, or even to feed me RSS while I'm playing games, then I WANT ONE.

    If it's only a standalone PC, then I can't be bothered with it.

    Erm, that is weird, especially if you can run the thing using only the built in screen. Talk about neck ache! Imagine looking down to the right constantly!

    Apparently will come in two SKUs, one with wireless HDMI and one without... Could be interesting, but I think I'd rather strap a Eeebox to the back of my TV.

    If that's even close to being able to handle BBC iPlayer/4oD or similar, it'll be a smash with people at home. All these folks with spangly new HDTV's would love it tbh. :D

    It would be quite cool if you could put a numpad on the touchscreen...

    HDMI (or any other form of TV-out) has been sadly lacking from the EEE-netbooks...maybe they're learnig

    If it could be hooked to my LCD TV it would be nice! internet on the fly!

    But I still would prefer a all glass tablet (sort of iTouch A4 format)

    I second the ITouch in A4 format. It would be the perfect: Netbook, E-reader, media player, TabletPC ect. Of course it would have to be an OLED screen other wise the glare would be horrendous, because of the angle of use.
