 so err... that'll be a "no"?  that's not a laptop is it.   and
jaeeezuss look at the price.  £465 retail they must be off their
heads.  might as well get the $750 enyxos http://hardkernel.com
developer platform at that price - at least you'd get the source code
and a ready-made community based around programming it.

"The ICONIA TAB plays HD 720p video, and puts out Full HD 1080p on a
big screen via HDMI®. "

 ... then why did boxee _drop_ the Tegra 250 and go with the Intel
CE4100 then eh?

i just don't understand.  it's not cheap - it's not exciting (because
it's on the android bandwagon - android devices are 2-a-penny) it's
not different like that "transformer" tablet - the one with a keyboard
as a stand - and it's not preloaded with a desktop OS.

anyone got any explanations because i'm mystified at the disconnect i really am.
