Don`t really think the Hardware is anything special really. The touchscreen is nice but apart from that the specs are pretty run of the mill. You can get a FAR better machine without the touchscreen for the money.
I don't know why their making a cloud computing storage. People have a hard enough time with getting their home PCs invaded, now you're going to trust an unseen stranger with all of your data? No thanks...
While I like the cloud for backup purposes, I still prefer large hard drive capacity on my devices. I do not want to be cut off from all my documents, files, and other various info just because of a lack of Internet access, or due to service outages.
For most of the computer-using public, this is a very expensive "toy" and not much more. It doesn't have the specs of a gaming laptop with mega-clocked CPU speeds that will render massively impressive motion and graphics, it's also not a business powerhouse either, capable of crunching through MySQL data within seconds. SO where does that leave you? With an expensive toy. It's nice because of it's weight, it's got a really "pretty" display, and the screen has finger-touch capabilities, but other than these few nice touches this is hardly the ground-breaking net book that will become all the rage, and it's not because of any of the other reasons listed ABOVE that this item will not "catch on". it's the little matter of it's PRICE that will prevent this from becoming mainstream, cloud computing aside, this is not worth $1,300.00. the final negative offering is the fact that you have very little storage locally, granted a SSD is impressively fast, but just adding a few full length ".flv" movies to your hard drive might crowd it up. No.....they have to re-think this one, and try to find a middle-of-the-road value type of machine that the masses will eat up like candy.....because this one is NOT it!
It's designed to compete with the Mac Air, pricey, and mostly a 'toy' also. 99% of the people I have with the expensive laptops, is only to show people that they have a pricey laptop.
