    I think they shoulda shopped around a bit more and not simply gone with the first search they found on yell.com

    why dont they make the top of it flat and then a proper keyboard can go on top instead of using that laser projection that noone seems to like.

    If they are thinking ruggedized computer for the developing world than i feel one of those laser keyboards is a poor choice both cost and usability wise.

    perhaps a membrane keyboard (like the type on microwaves or dishwashers) that are a little more impervious to water and rage bashing.

    "Couple this with the fact that the unit will also require a replacement lamp - usually every 2,000 hours or so with standard projectors "

    2000 hrs? I'd have to buy a new bulb once a year. Some of those bulbs for projectors can cost into the 100s of $. Don't sound like a bargain to me.

    As for the laser keyboard, I think thats a bit overkill. Should stick with a good ole tride and true keyboard. I still use a keyboard that's over 10 years old because the keys have just the right amount of resistance. Have to use an adapter for it because the plug is still the big round circle before the smaller PS2 plugs came about.

    Is a cool concept though, when pico projector's get to HD this sort of thing will be huge, not sure about the keyboard part, touchscreen I would say would work better.

    Wow. Ugly as sin, and looks to be about as functional as a speaker for the deaf.

    It's a cool concept but I don't see it coming to light any time soon
