I think it sounds very cool. Unfortunately, I am a poor student right
now, so I wouldn't be able to afford one. If I hade the oney though, I
would definitely be interested. Apart from the specs all the others
are asking qusetions about, I would be interested to know the
dimension and weight of it. I don't know much about laptops, but the
battery life sounds like it is extremely good, and IMO that is a big
advantage in a laptop.
