The CrunchPad is expected to be a light, thin device that is primarily used for browsing the Web, reading e-mail, and viewing videos from Flash-based Web sites like YouTube and Hulu. The device will have a 12-inch touch screen with an “iPhone-like” virtual keyboard, and the device will use Intel’s Atom processor.
imagine the space you can save by avoiding a computer tower? or losing all those stupid cables that connect to the tower?
sure, you can get a laptop – but a descent laptop will still put you down $700-1000 on the cheap end. (of course that’s my opinion of borderline quality and cheap)
but imagine picking this thing up for under $300. yea, i was surprised.
