    I would love to know what's inside and if you can install Windows on it.

    Why are you so anti Mac OS?

    This thing looks beautiful.

    Take that back. I am not anti Mac OS and I don't know how you reached that conclusion.

    EDIT: What I am in favour is being able to use my programs and games on a portable computer, tablet form would be perfect.

    Oh yes, it certainly does.

    The issue is not style, but price, this will be put squarely at the current Netbook market and thus needs to be priced at $400 or £250 at the very most. Any higher and it will fail at getting any sort of market penetration due to a lack of an actual market for the device.

    The next few months will be interesting indeed.

    If this tablet is sold for £250 in europe, I promise my next computer to be an Apple no matter what.
