It is not often that end users have the ability to offer feedback and direction to a large manufacturer regarding future product development, but that's exactly what's going on over at the WePC project website. If you're unfamiliar with the WePC project, it's a joint venture between Asus and Intel in which both companies are looking for input from members of the technology press and blogging world, and readers. This quote from the WePC site does a great job of summarizing the projects goal..."Imagine your perfect PC. Now imagine top engineers and innovators working around the clock to make that Dream PC a reality. That's the dream WePC.com is all about.ASUS and Intel have created WePC.com, a place where users like you come together to share ideas, images and inspiration about your ideal PC. But what if it's not just talk. Your designs, feature ideas and community feedback will be evaluated by ASUS and could influence the blueprint for an actual notebook PC built by ASUS with Intel inside."
We have been participating in the WePC project since its inception and want to get you involved in the conversation as well. A few of my recent posts are being featured on the site at the moment and I would really appreciate some feedback. My posts cover topics ranging from keyboards to software installation, and from performance to form factors...
In the posts, I've written about some of the things I'd like to see happen in the mobile space and have recommended some options and features. We hope after checking out the WePC site that you will do the same. If there's an innovative feature you'd like to see implemented on a future product, voice your opinion today, and you may be able to buy your ideal notebook tomorrow.
I was very disappointed at the Finalists.
Docking, KidPC, DualScreen, Touchscreen...
That's not innovative, that's the Nintendo DS.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Good points, 3vil. All the more reason to speak your mind over on the WePC site. And while you're there, comment on my articles for good measure. :)

Respect for dissenting opinions and differing points of view. That's why I like this site.
I did comment over there, back when the finalists were first announced... but the comments system didn't seem very conducive to productive discussions.
