Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has produced the first laptop in the world that makes use of Windows Vista SideShow to support a secondary screen in the lid. This is a 2.8in screen with a QVGA resolution of 320x240, just like any number of mobile phones that are on the market. The lid of the Asus also holds 1GB of flash memory which stores a cut-down Operating System that powers SideShow and which also links to the main Vista Operating System."

So, it's a laptop with a PDA built built in?

Sounds crazy, but then again, lots of 'crazy' ideas have been put to really nifty uses in the past few years.

As to the 'cut-down Operating System,' I'm going to take a stab in the dark and guess Windows CE.
