wow! I was inches from buying a first generation samsung q1, then came the Q1 ultra which I still wanted even thought every critic said it was underpowered, just tell me when its available or where can I buy ASAP! as a musician I need a small fully functional computer that I can put in the pouch of my gig bag without lugging around a separate case for a laptop.
