    You guys seen/heard of it?

    I think it's pretty cool, but the only thing that bothers me is the low amount of ram, and the fact it doesn't have an x86 processor.

    I'd totally buy one in a heartbeat if I could run Windows 7 on it and give it a GB or 2 of RAM.


    Would be better if the cover was black too, but oh well.

    For running linux though the specs are MORE than enough. Right now with a full Desktop environment (KDE) that rivals Vista's and FAH running I am using only 186mb Ram. With fluxbox I have gotten my RAM usage down to under 70mb usage. Very cool item, can't wait to see the evolution of it.

    Yea, hence why I said to run Win7 :p


    I know those specs are more than capable for Linux, but it wouldn't be too much use for me sadly with Linux =\

    Hmm, that is rather tempting, but I cannot honestly say I'd have a use for it.

    It would be good for a student who only used it for classes and the occasional web browsing.

    It all hinges on whether the touchscreen has a decent on-screen keyboard...
