    No lower than $200? Well, as long as it is $200, I'll still buy the damn thing. I've been wanting a small pseudo-notebook for a long time.

    I've been waiting for something like this. I dislike these mega/ultra/super huge laptops that are the norm nowadays. They weigh a ton and still underperform. I mean, really, most notebooks nowadays are not really built for mobility or for the road. They are meant for people who either dislike desktop computers and/or are short on living space. Yes, there are some subnotebook manufactures/models out there, but they cost an arm and a leg. This seems perfect. Not everybody wants or needs a 10lb 17-inch widescreen monster notebook.
