It's a hack. I like Lenovo's hybrid tablet better.

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

I'm getting it.
Entrylevel price was half of what I feared and had more than I expected: iWork. I thought it'd be a pure media toy but now it has uses.

I'm hoping it'll replace my (paper) A4 to A5 notebooks.
I don't have the habit of unfolding my laptop everywhere I go so right now I walk around with notebooks which I then write manually to computer if I want to save it.
I usually don't bother and end up losing my notes when I bulk throw-away piles of notebooks.
Hopefully I just use this tablet.

I've tried to solve this problem before. Windows tablet didn't work for me. It was self-defeating by being more of a pain in the ass than just using pen and paper.

2 in 1, and a processor for each system. How can you resist that?

What's the price range on that?

And how's the GUI on it?

I just want to pull something up and write on it, whether it's pen or paper or a tablet. The latter has bonus of being digital from the start.

I've looked at ideapad as I've already tried and returned a lenovo(thinkpadx200).
Windows (desktop systems in general) is simply not made for this form and speed is critical.
If I have to dig it up and wait startup and then load programs... then it's more convenient to pull up pen and paper from the bag.

If the iPad works like a cellphone (which it should, read moaning about it being a big phone) then I just pull it up and go.
30days standby(lol?) suggests that's how it works.

Price should be $999, and it has 2 operating systems, hence the hybrid thing. For the laptop, it's windows 7; for the tablet it's linux

It should be ready in summer 2010.

The tablet part runs on Lunix skylight, not windows.
