    Hurrah!

    Dual core, an NVidia chipset (flash acceleration if rumours are true), 3GB+, 60GB SSD, 1280x800 10-11" screen, 5hrs battery and all <1.5Kg wih Windows 7 = perfect IMHO...

    Lets see if it happens!

    Assuming that Celeron 7xx series is just a lower-voltage version of the 5xx series Celerons, chances are that even in multithreaded tasks it'll be competitive with the hyperthreading Atom (in the same way an Athlon Neo is comparable on multithreaded file compression, for instance) and will be way ahead in single-threaded tests. As long as the battery life is OK, it has a reasonable (read: better than 945G!) supporting chipset and the price is around the same as an Atom netbook, I'd go for a CULV Celeron first, personally...
