G.SKILL Ripjaws 4x2gb DDR3 1600 : MSI Geforce GTX 770 2gb : Antec 300
OCZ Agility 2 60gb SSD (OS) : SanDisk Ultra 120gb SSD (Apps) : Crucial M500 240gb (Steam) : Win 8.1 Pro 64bit
2x Samsung 2494LW & 1x Dell U2312HM Eyefinity

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 : Core i5 2410M : 12.5" 1366x768 IPS LED display : Intel 320 Series 120gb SSD

It's not a netbook. It's a media tablet. They're two different categories of devices.

A little overpriced. Check out the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA, ASUS Eee PC 1000HE, ACER Aspire ONE, Samsung NC10, Lenovo S10, and the Dell Mini 10 for comparison prices.

If you want to spend $399 on a 10" netbook, go with the 1000HE from ASUS.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth

Yeah it's a little much, I'd look at the other models people are suggesting. The MSI Wind has some particularly good feedback, especially on the screen.
