    Interesting concept I must say.:)

    From the manufacture press release (Dated 11-12-02):
    From the specs sheet:
    • Pentium-III Ultra Low Voltage processor 800 MHz or higher
    • Up to eight hours of battery life (battery in second bay)
    • Dual XGA (1024x768) 13.3 or 15" touch screens
    • Input from stylus, standard or wireless keyboard/mouse, or onboard keyboard
    • Up to 1 GB RAM, up to 60 GB HD
    • Internal Combo Drive
    • Two Mini PCI Type III Slot for internal wireless/bluetooth/other
    • Smart Card and Compact Flash Memory Card Reader
    • PC Card slot, type I/II
    • 3 USB ports, 1 Firewire 400 port
    • RJ-11, RJ-45 ports (modem and ethernet)
    • Stereo speakers, headphone jack, line-in, microphone

    This is a very pricey computer, but the 13.3" model looks really appealing :p All I can say is, this is a cool concept.

    What do ya'll think?

    I think it looks like a great idea! All it needs is a 970, 10.3 and it'll be sorted ;)

    Built in wireless would be nice as well. But even though its nice, what would you use it for?

    Load eNovel and have the pages flip for you on your way to work on the Metro? Applications in general are limited and anyone who thinks touch screen is going to bring about the death of the desktop machine is on drugs. Got to love the way the marketing 'gurus' for the product try and sell it. It would never be practical as a workstation.
