Looks nice and seems to have good specs.
Hope the swivel hinge will be more solid.

Too bad it has such a crappy screen-resolution and the useless mousepad that HP also uses (a button on each side is soooooo annoying). I love my M912X with high-res screen. Only downside is the batterylife and the fact that it gets a bit hot when folded into tablet-mode.

^^ Kim is spot on. Low resolution and those buttons on the side! WTF were they thinking. My friend has an acer mini9 and it has the same setup and is basically unusable.

Well at least this has the touchscreen... Lets hope its priced under a grand...

If it costs a grand I'd rather have an outlet latitude XT. bigger/1280x800 screen, capacitive multi-touch, even the 1.2 ULV C2D is better than the atom. Be better built by far, too.

This is truly pathetic: after I posted a critical but detail comment on its video over at Youtube, the video suddenly became private (and I bet my post is gone)...

...truly pathetic, Gigabyte, that is.
