Real Genius, indeed

Now, stick one of these on the end of a Mach 10 SCRAMJET and things get interesting.

Don't forget...

The comment about the proximity of the touchpad was unfair. If I recall, it uses a Synaptics touchpad which has a 'palmcheck' feature to prevent this problem.

Also, no mention was made of the 'instant' multimedia capabilities - you can play a dvd without even booting up windows (unless this has been removed from the latest TX models, but I doubt it).

If you've been put off by this review, trust me - pop into PC World (can't believe I just said that !) and play with one, you'll fall in love.
