Heh, the amazing design belies its (below) average configurations. But it's nice to see a nice design used with a Centrino system.

Few things quite BAD about this lappy...
1) 15.4 screen is currently available ONLY in WXGA (1280x800) WSXGA is coming sooner or later.. possibly later
2) Ati Radeon 9600 with 64MBs. mmh...
3) No 802.11g ...
Fact is: in what this laptop currently differs from other wide aspect notebooks? Only the design? and they call it a "revolution".... well...
Take the words from Asus: "we realized that human sight is more keen onto a wide angle view.. so we take the 16:10 approach" well... fact is, Apple powerbooks apart, the first centrino widescreen was the x1000 from compaq.. then came emachines, HP, Clevo, Acer.. should I go on? Asus is just the last newcomer. Same for the other features.
Summarizing: there's really no difference between this lappy and other offers by other producers other than the exterior design.. If you think of the suggested retail price (2000-2500 Euros) you'll realize this thing is really much hype and quite few substance.

THe M6's are getting the 9700 in june, it's just going to be a turning point with a slightly newer chipset...... whatever
