    We've tried it, but the quoted battery life will be a concern for many.

    1.5hr battery life? Methinks not!

    And that mini touch screen, I mean, what practical use is it really? Only for those with nimble fingers. Looks nice tho.

    Is this really meant for mobile use though? It strikes me as more of a space-saving desktop than a portable. Presumably in that set-up the touch-screen could be used for widgets / calculator / other small apps - should work well with Windows 7 where widgets can be stuck anywhere on the desktop rather than just on the sidebar. I don't think I'd want one of these at home, but it would be very tempting indeed at work...

    As an aside: Anyone know if there's any way of making the keyboard work as an external keyboard as well? Linking one to a KVM could be very handy...

    Why does this have a battery at all?

    I don't get it.
