Definetly the future of consumer devices. I note from a comparison
perspective that this unit uses a digital connection for the LCD panel to
the main unit (hardwired like a laptop). This is in contrast to the Sony
VAIO Slimtop
which uses an analog external connection to the base unit. Speaking from
experience, analog-connected LCDs suck the big donkey.

P.S. Anyone want an analog-connected Viewsonic LCD display? Mine is
awaiting bidders at eBay right now :)
