    This looks sweet! This is what the iPad should have been!

    This is where my pocket money is going.

    The iPad killers are definitely coming!!!

  • Awesome

    I’m sure the “experience” won’t be as good, but hey, it might actually be useful!

  • Justin

    Finally, a real tablet for people who want to do more than just surf the net, watch movies, Facebook, Twit all day long. It doesn’t need to be flawless or beautiful, but definitely needs to get the jobs done! My money is going here for sure!

    I’d write it off as a laptop without a keyboard, but the battery life sounds impressive. What it really needs is a pile of applications designed for tablet use, which are a rarity on Windows.

    I shudder to think what the price is going to be on this thing. Please let it be below $1000…

    Just saw it yesterday at the Computex ( and I can say that techically/design side it can easily compete with the iPad. On the software side I’m not sure but we can guess that some people will come with nice tweaked version of Ubuntu/Linux (such as Jolicloud for instance).
