    That sounds pretty interesting, although I'm sure all the other netbook makers will jump on the internal 3G dongle at some point though so it's probably worth waiting 6 months or so.

    Interesting, that actually looks like a nice product. All they need to do now is get the pricing right and they might be on to a winner.

    Is this atom based? I'm surprised Nokia aren't offering a Linux version as well given there purchase earlier this year.

    most do not want or understand linux as an default option most of them get sent back for the XP (or 7 version), as basic things like msn and printers do not work and wireless in some cases (WPA hack still does not work very well on linux does not always work/connect, WEP is fine thought)

    netbook it self looks nice most likely going to a lot of cost money

    Printers and WPA work fine its mostly a matter of familiarity, people "get" how windows works they've invested years learning it, that hurdle is the biggest problem for Linux. I can see why manufactures wouldn't want to sell Linux, support issues returns etc, but i wish they would offer netbooks/nettops with out MS as an option.

    I have to agree with this! If this comes with a decent price i will have one to play with at work!!!! and with the GPS i could use this instead of my SATNAV bigger screen and i can turn off the bloody annoying (turn left/right) voice! and for everyone thats gona go on about turning the volume down on my SATNAV, why not dissable it for the GPS and still plug it onto my sound system and listern to what i want to!!!!!

    lol. That's an interesting way of looking at why Vista isn't installed on netbooks.

    I wouldn't mind spending quite a bit for something like this. Sounds like a great device!
