Hard to tell from the pic, but it looks like they're sticking with that horrible key layout with the tiny right-shift key that has you hitting cursor-up for the first couple of months.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Yeah 3vi1 I also question the use of DDR2 on a mobile platform. If they used DDR3 it helps the energy platform on the CR-600, as this is the only one with a GPU besides the board included. That platform specifically would benefit more from DDR3 in 2 ways one for extended graphics memory (it also includes 3 instead of 4 gigs), and because of the add in solo GPU the energy time is already impacted as well. This seems odd to me, but maybe it's just me. The CPU and display are also going to impact this energy profile as well.
