>> The first phase will use "Microsoft Software,"
Of course it will. Microsoft has apparently given Asus some kind of sweetheart deal, and a practically free customized version of Windows 7, in order to keep them from selling EEE machines with Linux pre-installed.
Call me cynical, but this is exactly what I expected when I saw that Asus had recently announced they would be "supporting" Meego. I thought "Wow, that's a great way to keep getting free licenses from Microsoft.".
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I second that 3vi1, Nice move by M$, to keep up the competition. This should at some point slowly start biting into the sales of iPAD if it launches with a Win7Lite.

This market has already developed to slowly. It is not like we are reinventing the wheel here!
We are just taking of the hinge of a laptop, and adding a touchscreen! Apple has always been good at taking multiple technologies that have been developed over time by a multitude of different companies, sticking them all together in a small smooth package and selling it as unique!
Kinda like Avatar did! Nothing really new, just combined into a neat Blue 3D package just to make it look new :P Yeah,...Think about it!
I am sure I will get hell from the Avatards for that one :)
So Tom, if you watched the movie Avatar then you've been made into an Avatard?
Or is it only if you enjoyed the movie? Did you run this 'expression' through the PC bible first?
If Apple is the ONLY company to have combined all of the unique technologies into one device, then they ARE unique in my mind. I like most of their releases, they just overprice the heck out of them.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST FERNGULLY, uh, POCAHONTAS, er i mean... AVATAR?!?!?
That picture looks like a laptop screen with the keyboard cut out. It has the little rubber mats were the screen and keyboard meet.
@bob, looks like they're speakers, they don't appear to continue to the bottom edge of the casing.
