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 like that it has Bluetooth built-in, this alone probably makes the machine pretty good value for money. Ok so you can buy dongles for $25 but still.

I probably won't get one, since I already got an Acer Aspire One 8GB/Linux version and I intend to wear it down before buying something else :p

It would have been good for Apple to come out with something like this. Then again, they'll have their own reasons for doing what they do.
