read the above article ... YESTERDAY!!!

quick run-down of the specs:

1.6GHz Intel Atom 230 CPU
up to 4GB of RAM
up to 250GB of HDD space
4-in-1 card reader
HDMI / VGA outputs
gigabit Ethernet
six USB 2.0 sockets
audio in / out
Windows Vista Home Premium / Basic
svelte black and white enclosure
7.1- x 7.1- x 1.2-inches
capable of handling 1080p (and thus, Blu-ray) content
DirectX 10 capabilities

as you can probably guess, i find this very unexciting ... oh who am i kidding, i'm totally stoked!!
i can't wait to get my hands on one of these things, the only thing that would take this level of stok-ed-ness higher would be an ion-based tablet netbook!!! i'm waiting for one to be developed like madness!!

this machine isn't a beast when it comes to processing power but who am i kidding, my daily activities don't require that much processing power anyways! what amazes me is it's ability to handle HD and it's damn compact size!

This does look very impressive, but the price if the main point here, when they release it.

WTF it's so small I'd lose it... or step on it... or my big computer woud laugh at it xD

Still, pretty impressive specs for something so tiny and helpless looking.
