HA, lol. Whats the name of this laptop? Looks intresting, the bottom screen can be used as something other they a keyboard right?
I'm not sure what it's going to be called yet. I believe only the photos have been leaked so far.
I would imagine you could hold it sideways and use it as a dual-page eBook too.
Right now what I'm wondering is if they implemented the keyboard function in the firmware (with OS APIs & BIOS settings for disabling it), or the keyboard is solely a virtual keyboard app running in the OS. Either way is great I guess; even if there's no keyboard function in the firmware you could still connect an external keyboard if you needed to reinstall the OS or something. I know you can use a touch screen in the Ubuntu installer (and presumably it's the same in Win7), but I'm not sure how you'd type in the name of the default user account without using a keyboard.
No matter what, I'm pretty sure I won't be crazy about this though. I can see myself making a lot more typos without any tactile feedback.
