    Wow. Those things are cool.

    You could get a flat screen monitor and use it as a laptop and a desktop. Only one thing could make it cooler - a DVD-ROM drive.

    Anyone know how much they sell for?
     
  3. seen a couple up close their pretty cool. hard to upgrade, like a laptop, but very cool

    So how big is it? I mean I know they got a pen beside it, but at UMIST they have got a Giant Pencil Room, they use the giant pencils to make things look smaller in pictures.

    Fine. You win, it was left open and too easy :)

    ....the ones that have seen have not said that, mouth was too full...

    Now, back on topic of the thread...

    I still think the PC is too small. I would have it being dropped off my desk all the time, like my router. Poor thing. I'm waiting till it breaks so I can get a wireless one :)

    I like my...30 or so pound computer.

    I have to weight it, see how much it actually is.

    The size is 8x7x3. That means no HD capacity, on board everything, costs like a laptop, and way too much heat. The power supply is a brick that sits on the floor.

    The company I work for was buying something like them from HP. 10x10x4. They stopped. Failure rates were horrendous and they were getting stolen in quantity...

    You'd be better off with a laptop.
