I'll withhold final judgement until we know for sure exactly which programs the Broadcom chip helps accelerate decoding of.

it'd be nice to have an hdmi port on this thing - if it in fact supports 1080p..
i'd buy one and leave hooked up to my TV as a dedicated media PC ;-)

I like this, and I think manufacturers should keep one thing in mind, with this slate market seemingly waking up like it is, it will shift this market segment down at least to some percentage. So adding higher functions to the netbook makes them more appealing in the smaller mobile end of things.
I am waiting to hear about the T101. I'm eying that one right now.
After having tried this myself in a netbook I own I know that having a Broadcom decoder is great for watching online video.

Battery is supposed to last up to 11 hours. I wonder what the battery life is when watching 720p media.
