    You would think that 'less than $1000' meant '$999' or (£999), but hey, maybe there are reasons to be optimistic this time. Still, I don't think 11.6" is not for me, I still find 13.3" to be the sweetspot as an all-rounded laptop I would use for work and gaming.

    For me 11.6" is the sweetspot, but then I wouldn't usually expect so much graphics power in a portable device.

    Other than being a bit garish I think they have got a lot right here. 11.6" screen, backlit keyboard, decent battery, powerful when you need it, decent price. I would need to see one in person to guage the weight and size though.

    Edit: Also, will the integrated graphcis and CPU be able to handle HD flash and 264 videos without the power hungry discrete gpu?

    If the price is right... I think I'll be kissing goodbye to my next student loan

    The thing that rules out this laptop for me is that the GPU is only DX10. If it used any of the newer ATI DX 10.1/11 graphics cards, id buy it immediately

    I like the 13.3" size too, some 12" machines have the optical drive but they're getting harder to find.
