    Read a review here.
    Put simply - there is no reason for you not to go out and get one of these little beauties, it's affordable and ultra-usable. So yes, believe the hyperbole - this is possibly the best ultra-portable laptop in the world.

    I'm not convinced... then again it's a must have... then again I could buy a second hand laptop with better specification for the same price... then again it's a must have .

    but IMO it's hardly a bargain at the price.
    It was supposed to be priced at $199 level....

    It's surely the perfect portable laptop - it's tiny, cheap and has wifi. The only thing that really bugs me is the resolution...

    If you want a laptop to do a bit of browsing and emails on the go then this can't be beat. It is ultra cheap, very compact and fairly soild. If you want a fully fledged PC you can take away with you then this isn't the right thing for you.

    It might be of interest to me, especially if it will run Windows (proven afaik) when traveling.

    WiFi / USB (v2+) is really all that's required, fundamental basics. Shame about the doubled price tag.

    Check out the review above. The system comes with a comprehensive guide for those that want to install Windows XP so you can minimise the memory used; a £20 1GB RAM upgrade was recommended though for performance "as responsive as we could wish".

    I've registered my interest on a few sites so should get an email when in-stock.

    If indeed it lives up to the hype it'd save me lugging around a relatively hefty laptop through various security checkpoints and having to keep an eye on it every second.
