    Yet another netbook manufacturer misses the point.

    I'm sure it's a lovely machine and all, but 400 quid is definitely outside the realm of "disposable" income for most people.

    well since the nc10 has the silver anti bacterial stuff on the keys i guess this is void of any reason for the price. not even a n280 in there.....

    Yeah, but the nc-10 started out with a £400 price point and ended up at £330 with some etailers doing it for £300. If I was to buy a netbook it would be an nc-10, and that has the same silver coated keyboard. Let's see what the price is when it ships shall we?

    £399 for a netbook? Are they mad? Their own NC20 is selling for about that or less with a 12.1" screen, and another £50 - £100 will get you a proper 12" laptop with pentium dual core, 2GB ram, much better integrated graphics etc. etc. etc.

    I can't wait for Yukon to come along and make all these rubbishy over-priced Atom based systems look as ordinary as they are...

    Great, yet another option which completely fails to differentiate itself from the hoard in an already saturated market. I guess for many consumers, it's a choice between price and brand awareness; the features are so similar that they'll barely even register.

    Until I start seeing more innovation, be it battery life, connectivity (i.e. ditching VGA and offering DVI/HDMI), or the inclusion of improved GPU options (for full HD output through DVI/HDMI - ION perhaps), I'm simply not interested.
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Hang on, some of you are a bit quick to slate this really very harshly - it is early days. Bet in a few months everyone will love it, just like with the NC10/20 which get the respect they deserve.
