Arrow nice to see

I actually like the little beast. Lenovo recently released the X100e which has similar specs; no 1G video memory but the price is less.

These have decent screens (1366 x 768), full networking (wi-fi N and gigabit network), can have acceptable amounts of RAM (4G), and run full Windows 7 (not starter or XP Home). I am really happy to see vendors taking ultra-portable computers seriously again. Nice to see the netbook revolution made some waves.

Now if the price would just come down a little...

Ha! No, no I did not expect that.

Shame. Dell already has my name and address so I would have actually entered this.

I wouldn't want to get this as it only gets 30 FPS playing MW2 which IMO isn't enough FPS to play current games. If it had a more powerful GPU than this would be great.
