Hardware, Embedded Systems We have found the device of your dreams. Make no mistake: this is what OSNews readers have always wanted. You are going to buy this device, in droves. Trust me, as far as geekness goes, this is pretty much the best it'll ever get. Fully open source (from hardware to software), easily servicable, runs Linux, has an ARM processor, accelerometer, powerful 3D capabilities, 10-15 hours of battery life, touchscreen, and internal USB ports. And you know what? I didn't even mention the best part: the keyboard of the Touch Book netbook is detachable, leaving you with a 8.9" tablet. And all that for USD 299!

I've tried store demo Eee 901 and Eee 1000H at my neighborhood Best Buy, and apparently my fingers are too fat to be comfortable even on the 10" keyboard.

Have you also tried the keyboard of the acer aspire one? For me its the difference between useless and very handy.
I use me aspire one as primary machine, but such a device might convince me to buy one.
