    I must say, it does look pretty impressive. I think it's a creative solution that completes the bridge between Tablet and Laptop.

    I want to say that this could potentially ruin laptop sales, and maybe even tablet too.

    It's the best of both worlds, and looks pretty good. Costs $550.

    Thoughts?

    It's a laptop, with a touchscreen. Just like they have been trying to do for ten years. It has Win 7 Home (useless for corporate users), an intel Atom CPU, Intel integrated intel graphics and only 2gigs of ram.

    Let me correct myself, it's a net book with a touchscreen.

    It's not an iPad, and even though other tablets get discussed on here, it's a net book, with a touch screen. Wrong forum.

    I remember Engadget review wasn't so favorable.

    After buying a netbook and realizing it's (as Steve said in the iPad introduction) not good at anything. It's awkward or doesn't work at all. Slap a touch screen on that combo and it's just terrible. A touch screen laptop with a desktop os just isn't going to work.

    Looks like a miserable tradeoff between a netbook and a tablet. Jack of half trades master of nil.

    The review I just watched looked like a horrible horrible experience. Laggy, slow, poor viewing angle, fingerprint magnet..

    pass.

    Exactly. For $500, I'd rather get a fairly powerful laptop like the Thinkpad x120e or an iPad. Not a compromise between the two.
