Can't wait to see a review of this. Can anyone think of games that would use this multi-touch technology? I mean besides the ones for the Iphone/Ipod Touch.

Yeah for gaming especially I would much rather have an external mouse. I remember when I first saw them saying stuff about these I was kind of like why. I mean it's cool, or maybe I am just to used to a mouse and keyboard I don't know.

I don't know in this price range if Dell is telling the truth I would be hard pushed to make the choice between this on and that 11" dell. The Dell is basically a super netbook sized ultra light with more performance than anything like it from what it looks like.

Do you mean the Alienware M11x?

That'll be the first laptop of its kind, so much power in so little a package, but the battery life is going to be below average.

Yeah, but with the split video and other power considerations I don't know. I mean my laptop rarely gets more than that off the plug anyways.

True. I was thinking of hte GT 335M combined with the 4 cell battery in the M11x. An 11" notebook is more for portability than for pure gaming, and I'd expect consumers to want at least 2-2.5 hour battery life for it. I'm interested to see how Alienware will balance power and efficiency.

Back to the Battalion Touch CZ-10, it seems that it's shippin with ATI 4650. Do you suppose that will be considered underpowered? They have the option of going with the GT 260M.
