    It's too expensive, but this is good. It raises the bar, hopefully others will follow.

    Finally, I'm getting what I asked for!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Now if only that 10" screen was 1280x800 or similar I'd have reason to upgrade my EEE 901 (customised with 2GB RAM, Intel WLAN card and Runcore 32GB SSD).

    So presumably all the user settings, programs, swap space, temp files etc. have to go onto that 8GB SSD? You'd need to clear out the old stuff pretty damn regularly...

    Totally agree with kingpotnoodle, 1280x800 would be much better or at least 720p (1280x720) resolution... especially as one of the big points about the improved hardware is it's hi def decode abilities. In fact the other thing it really lacks that would make it (almost) perfect is hdmi out... seriously what's the point of being able to decode 1080p if I can't put in out on a native 1080p screen... (yes I know the hdmi license costs but at least a mini display port out then?)

    On a lesser note, I don't know why I always read the word "unique" in tech articles and almost always with its meaning diluted, such as here: "But bear with us, as this is one that's fairly unique."

    Something's either unique or it's not. It's a discreet variable, not a continuous one.

    /ok obnoxious, pedantic rant over/

    both dell (mini 10 HD) and HP (2140) have 1366x768 10" netbooks on the way over her in the not too distant future. more will no doubt follow so its not as grim as it looks

    Humbug.

    That 12 hours (or 28 hours with screen off...) presumably reduces back down to a paltry 2-3 (comparative with 12), when you TRY TO DO SOMETHING, which is, uh, the whole reason your laptop/netbook/desktop/StarShipEnterprise is on itfp.
