(unlike tablet pcs) Bad: battery life premium (though you get more functionality) They look nifty. Would be a good buy for college. They seem so good, though I wonder why they aren't as popular. Maybe most people just want a laptop that works? I'm interested in more than "just works" though. I know ModBook is out there and I heard about a "tiny" macbook (UMPC), but this is different.
