Looks pretty cool. I'd like to see it in person and with my hands. :)
For a split second I got really exsited, I have a Sam's club a 1/2 mile from my house and a membership. Then I read canada and my heart kinda dropped. Now I know how all those people in other countrys feel when I get sweet stuff first.
The laptop does come with one downside: Giant Panda bear attacks.
