    There's a sweet spot in the market that no-one's hit yet - something halfway between the eeePC and the Macbook Air in size, so it'd have a (mostly) useable screen and keyboard but still be smaller than a standard laptop, and hit a price point around $500-$700 US. That'd make it usable and cost effective for a web-browsing, note-taking machine, but not replace a full sized computer for extended work or gaming. This one looks like it's getting closer, I guess we'll find out.

    The eee with a screen that filled the case would do nicely!

    If this does only cost £350, it would be rather tempting

    That is the usual resolution for LCD TVs, but for computers it is more normally 1280*800

    superb looking laptop.

    if only there's a mini-laptop in similar thickness and portability as Macbook Air or IBM X300, but in this price range. isn't 8inch a bit small?

    mechanical hard drive? Vista?
    i want to see more specs before i commit.

    if it turns out to run XP pro well then it may be a worthy investment

    Your probally right, but then whats the point, you can get a decent laptop for £400.
    I guess were have to wait and see for the specs.

    I can't really see this thing as a very useful unit TBH. 12" seems to be the best size at the moment.


    I have seen 17" laptops in an envelope, so that's a pretty poor measurement :p
