It looks good, regarding power, but it very much looks like two laptops glued together, the screen/table part is quite large.

I don't want to be a moaner though, I'd have that over an iPad any day.

Looks a lot like an Archos device, and with only a 5" screen it's not going to be much fun doing a lot of reading on it. Also, it looks like it needs one of those easy-to-lose styli. I already have an N810 which isn't much inferior (and was a lot cheaper).

Here's a tablet actually being exhibited, apparently not like the last one I read about which was just a mock-up running a video loop.
It would be nice if something like this actually got to the stage where one could lay down some hard cash against it. Then again, I'd need some hard cash first.

By the way, do follow the link to the review on the Laptop site and watch the video of the reviewer crashing the car in the racing game as he tries to talk and play at the same time. ;)

Not unless I move to the Far East.

Still ollie, as it's only north of you, you could probably get one.
