    that's a spiffy lookin notebook. I wish they'd list dimensions though. Looks like the one in the image is gonna be pretty thin, but for all we know the screen is an inch thick.

    That's not thin! Look more closely, it's a full size kb with keypad AND surround bezel. It's huge. Use your eye to "cut it off" at the edges of the main part of the kb only, and you can see it isnt thin at all.

    Shame they didnt do a 12" version.

    I was basing it off the 3.5mm headphone jack. I guess you're right, it's probably a lot thicker than I imagine.
