    The Fujitsu Likebook U810, IMO, is a much better buy..about $900 bucks. Its a tablet mini computer.

    I like the look of that a lot better than the via. But, the via for that price is pretty good. And after using a touchscreen monitor for as long as I have... both be a good thing!

    Well that maxdata is about $900 bucks, and so is this fujitsu, and if you ask me...you are getting a shit load more from the fujitsu (touch screen, biometric finger reader, camera, a intel processor...etc).
     
    Cold Storm says thanks.
