    I love these things.
    I've played around with the Toshiba at Best Buy, but it wasn't plugged in and it was locked down.

    Still, I love the idea of a rotateable laptop.
    It looks ideal if you're into graphic design or writing of any form.

    I really want to pick one up, but I'm -$.
    Def1, let me know how it handles once you get it.




    me good spell

    up.. it's -Rage- here.
    I'll be online later in the week, so you can IM me then. Crazy busy at work lately.
    Maybe I'll make enough $ this month to buy the laptop..
    if it meets your standards.

    ive been playing with it non stop lately.. its not a slow machine.. the main complaints are that the dvd/cd-rw drive is an external. but now a days everything is downloaded. and what not. i figure transfer my itunes list to that thing. and photoshop, flash, illustrator and what not.. and ill be set. and with the drive being external you save a few pounds and thickness of the laptop itself. making the thing...
    1.4" thick, weighing in at 4 pounds. with a batery life of 4.5 hours or something around there. i know its above 4.3 hours.

    I can't wait 'til the future when there will be little internet tablets on the table that the family can share and such. Like the cordless phones.

    looks interesting, i dont know about the swivel screen though, seems to me like that would be easily broken. other than that, the lightness and thinness of it is pretty remarkable.

    I was thinking about getting one of those as I am a digital painter and use wacom tablets alll the time my commercial work and fine art.

    My main concern is:

    How many levels of sensitivity do those tablet PCs have? I have two Intuous 2 Wacom Tablets and both are 1024 levels of pressure and sensitivity. Do those Tablet PCs have the same or is it higher/lower? I would imagine it would be lower but how low? I'm curious? I'm hoping they have at least 512 levels of sensitivity.

    Does the warranty cover normal wear and tear for the swivel? a co-worker in the IQ crew said the warranty doesn't cover the keyboard thing
