Good to see that they understand the need for an indestructible portable!
But why cant they make it a tablet! Lets make what we will tell people what they want, instead of what they actually need!
Seems like the ideological Swedes are spending to much time in the Amsterdam coffee shops:P
ya i see tablets more use full in this line of work its going to be in.
Does this thing really need Win-7 ultimate?
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
That is the only plus for Ultimate is the language setup.
Since it is a Swedish company and probably made in China, It makes sense that you would have a OS that allows you to set up the operating language to wherever you are from. hopefully we are lucky enough to at least have them pay something for MS software? Then again they will probably sell these things to the hills of AfgStan, and they will end up getting their software and movies from the Russian Torrent sites
To bad Ultimate doesnt support Vulcan and Klingon

That's not Coffee in those Coffee Shops!
It's stinky and hairy and you'd like it too.
