If you're looking for a new notebook, and have any interest in a Tablet PC (which you should, because a convertible Tablet is just like a real notebook, only better), then this is a good, affordable option. Thanks to the folks at Gottabemobile.com for sniffing this out.

I'm not a big fan of widescreen Tablets, because they tend to stretch the writing surface unnaturally. My Toshiba M400 has a smallish screen, but it's in the same general proportions as a sheet of paper--which is distinctively not widescreen. Also, note that many Tablets (as with many notebooks in general today) have very high-res screens, making fonts and other screen elements tiny. A lot more information fits on the screen, for sure, but if your eyes are getting older like mine, it gets a bit tiring.

It's amazing, though, how much notebook you can get for $899.99. From what I can see, this unit sacrifices little, and would excel at the typical Tablet functions. Maybe a little more RAM would be nice, but all in all, a good looking machine.
