    I like the concept that these folks are using to bring a Linux Netbook to every day users.

    Our devices come with multiple Linux-based distribution, running on an ARM processor. By just pressing the magic AI button, you can literally switch between our home-made AIOS, Ubuntu, Chrome or Google Android. This allows you to run the best apps of each OS, side-by-side, without any performance loss. Browse the web, watch online videos such as Youtube or Hulu, or video-call your friends on Skype. And of course, everything is open-source, again.
    Ibm and Free Scale must be impressed also as they are copying their design.
    These Netbooks blow my EEEPCs and My Acer Aspire One out of the water. These things are killer.

    Full specifications

    * ARM Texas Instruments cortex-A8 with video and 3D acceleration
    * Numonyx 512MB RAM + 256 MB NAND
    * 8GB microSD card
    * 1024x600 8.9" capacitive touchscreen
    (see the demo on the Touch Book page)
    * Extractable Mini Book
    * Detachable Bluetooth / USB keyboard
    * Stored-in 2GB USB keychain
    * Stored-in Dual Screen
    * Wifi 802.11 b/g/n
    * Bluetooth class 2.1
    * Video output HDMI 720p
    * 4 available USB 2.0 (2 internal, 2 external)
    * 3-dimensional accelerometer
    * Speakers, micro and headphone I/O
    * Headset included
    * 3 batteries:
    o 12000mAh in the Keyboard
    o 6000mAh in the Tablet
    o 1500mAh in the Mini Book
    * outstanding battery life
    * FCC, CE, UL-certified, 5V, 3.5A power adapter
    * Bi-color silver/black case
    * Dark-red transparent back cover
    * Secured attachment system of tablet into keyboard
    * 9.7" x 7" x 1.3" for 3 lbs
    I know USB 3.0 plus other neat features are only some time away (seems like when you buy something. Something better shows up later). Seems like life is just "well, I guess I have another boat anchor"

    Wish I had disposable income. I want one.

    I watched the video and about cried.

    Depends how you define disposable income. Seems like as soon as my income comes in, the bills dispose of it!

    They have everything in it. But I wonder why they left out the web camera?

    Look at the break down picture in top r/h corner. It has 2 webcams waterhead. One on front of screen and another removable on back of screen display. Like I said. It is killer.

    Amen brother. Between utilities and the school tax component of property tases, it takes a big bite.

    Thanks, I missed that. They should add it to the system specs.
