what could change my mind
If that price included:
a battery operated, wireless connected, external DVD drive (what happened to wireless USB?)
a wireless mouse (with an internal adaptor that does not take up a USB slot)
a wireless headset (ditto)
an ethernet adaptor
a screen with at least 1200 vertical pixels
and if the thing had built-in 3G connectivity, and could make VOIP and cellular calls with the aforementioned headset.
