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."

Yeah, it will be fun for a few days but after that it's probably going to get annoying having to take that huge laptop out of the bag/backpack just to view your mail on a small screen.
You'll realize what you REALLY need is a PDA if you absolutely have to check your mail, view notes every 5 minutes everywhere you are.

And it makes the laptop ugly not to mention it's likely to get damaged in transport.
