as you can probably guess, i find this very unexciting ... oh who am i kidding, i'm totally stoked!!
i can't wait to get my hands on one of these things, the only thing that would take this level of stok-ed-ness higher would be an ion-based tablet netbook!!! i'm waiting for one to be developed like madness!!
this machine isn't a beast when it comes to processing power but who am i kidding, my daily activities don't require that much processing power anyways! what amazes me is it's ability to handle HD and it's damn compact size!
