the "revolutionary" keyboard is a near-perfect ripoff of the ultra-cheap small form factor usb keyboards fry's has stocked for ages. BTC 6100E is almost identical from the top and side.

otherwise wtf is so revolutionary about this approach?

i don't want my monitor in the same box as my cpu for a dozen obvious reasons.

what would really be great industrial design is for someone to come up with an "integrated" display that is easily removable. why can't i snap out the laptop display? how many monitor form factors are there?

It never ceases to amaze me just how hard it is for OSnews users to understand what a regular "consumer" is.

Am I the only one who can see what this computer design actually means in the real world? I'm surrounded by people so smart, they've forgotten how to be idiots :/

haha, the archetype of the consumer...this platonic ideal exists only in your head.

if consumers want simple, no buttons, no options, why do all of the following products sell well?:

- manual shift sports cars
- high end audio
- high end video
- digital SLRs that do not just "point and shoot"
- high-end kitchen anything

etc etc etc

stop leaning on the "ideal" of the consumer
