    FYI, looks like NewEgg.com has it for $20 less.

    I looked at one with WinXP about 10 days ago at a Circuit City B&M, not a BestBuy(WorstBuy). I ordered a Lenovo S10 last week instead.

    Funny review from a Top 100 review whore.. err, contributor.. on the Best Buy page:

    “Compare this to a macbook air. You get the small size with the same memory same hard drive same processor. IF a big screen isnt a big deal, then this is for you.

    [...]

    A dual core laptop with such portability and features like a webcam, SD card reader and microphone should go for much more than this, get one while you can!”

    I’m pretty sure the Macbook Air doesn’t use an Atom processor. And I’m pretty sure the Atom isn’t a dual core architecture. LOL.

    I was looking at one in Best Buy yesterday, and I would have brought one home, but the 8.9″ screen leaves so much bezel that it looks really cheap. Why couldn’t they squeeze a 10″ screen in there?

    (FWIW, I just got a Lenovo X300 for work and I have the same complaint there, there is so much bezel that it feels like they went cheap, why not reduce the bezel and get a 14″ or 15″ screen in there???)

    Is it just me, or should bezel be reduced as much as possible on *any* laptop?
