    It sounds good in concept but for most games you play a lot you don't even look at your keyboard a lot.
    Also whether the keyboards gives a good tactile response like a normal key will be interesting to find out about.

    I think the changing keyboard thing is cool, would love to have it for knowing hotkeys when doing things like using paint or 3d software where remembering the hotkeys is annoying.

    So if anything I think using this as a hopefully cheaper alternative to a Cintiq might be really cool, depending on how good the accuracy of the touch screen is and if it can tell pressure levels.

    Was thr brief to produce something with insta-fail?

    Anybody who 'raves' about 1024x600 res needs to resign on principal straight away.

    What I see is a chucky, limited ability (and probably expensive due to pointless touchscreen and LED keyboard), underpowered system. Hell even the keys aren't aligned as they are on a normal keyboard, being vertical and columns and all.

    What finally took the biscuit is the fact they promoted it's 1 USB point as a selling factor....o dear.

    Can this thing actually do anything a £300 ION based netbook can't?

    Facepalm.

    I disagree, 1024x600 is about the same as what most console games run at and it's on a 7" screen

    sure there are some things which will make it suck (Definitely lack of joystick, probably lack of storage) but it will likely be a success, a portable console with a screen 4 times the size of the iPhone which it seems will be able to play Crysis on high settings.

    I can see a lot of people willing to pay £450 for this, I know I will

    It is a bit of a fail for them to go with Intel on this TBH as they need to have an additional graphics card. The modern Intel IGPs are at best not much faster than an HD5450. Llano would have been a better solution IMHO.

    As a concept it actually might just be quite good. A portable/handheld 'console' that you can run full PC games on. The res means that games probably won't look too bad even if it did have a bottom end gpu of some kind, and I can certainly see the attraction. Probably won't sell at all though in the end...

    If I can play all the PC games I already own on this, and its priced sensibly (£400-500), I'd probably favour it over a handheld console.
