PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "It'll be a full x86 device - Lenovo calls a 'joint effort' with Intel and Microsoft - that clocks in at 1.3 pounds with a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 display. It's billed to have 10-hour battery life, which would be impressive for a device only 9.8mm thick. The standard model is Wi-Fi-only, but there will also be carrier versions including one with AT&T's LTE connectivity." If you see a 1366x768 resolution on a 10.1" display, they blew it.

I think this is where the Asus Transformer gets it right: Fully functional tablet for when you don't need to type, with a very nice keyboard dock for when you do. When it's docked, you have nearly 20 hours of battery life and it's so seamless it actually feels like a laptop computer. My best friend has one and I have to say it's the closest I've come to wanting a 10-inch tablet, only because of the amazing dock. If it weren't for the price I'd use one instead of this laptop without a moment's hesitation.

Yep, I almost bought one.

But around the same time Asus had netbooks with Linux here in Germany, using the AMD Fusion E-450 with 4GB RAM/500GB disk costing around 300€ vs 500€ for the Asus Transformer. With a battery time of around 6hours, if you don't abuse the GPU or wireless.

I decided to save 200€ and be able to use a plain Linux distribution without Android's restrictions.
