Competing against who?

But the question is can windows 7 really do touch screen? and is there going to be a replacement to an APP store?

So what is this for? What are they trying to sell this as?

who cares?

just install Android or Ubuntu on it.

It's nice hardware, shame to waste it running Windows.

If I hadn't just bought a new mini laptop, I'd seriously consider one of these.

I'll buy one...

for home use.

Been considering something to replace the home desktop for a while and this seems ideal as I was previously considering an Anrdoid tablet but seriously doubted I could do without a keyboard 100%.

Surely $550 converts to £550 (or near as damn-it)?

At least that seems to be the way if goes for products I've looked at.

@Jack Garnham: Why Android? Any consumer-friendly distro with multitouch (which I suppose could be the problem) would do, surely?

£400?

Are you mad? The list price will be £550. In the world or consumer products, US$1 = £1; regardless of what the actual exchange rate may be.
