Windows XP running on a PDA-sized device may not be everyone's dream-the portability is certainly attractive. Imagine 1GHz processing, a 30GB hard drive, HD-ready video, and all your favorite Windows apps in the palm of your hand. There's even a 1.3 megapixel camera included. I'm not sure how useful the included keyboard would be for typing; I'm guessing a Bluetooth add-on makes more sense. TV-out makes virtually any video monitor an option for viewing. With lightweight convenience for those who travel frequently, this is the ultimate in performance and compact design. Battery life is representative of most laptops currently available. Price looks like the biggest deterrent at this point (rumored to be around $1500), although not having to carry 7 lbs of laptop through airport security might pay off rather quickly.
