Question Would you buy it ???

So i was searching to buy a laptop , but instead i found the LIBRETTO from Toshiba . It looks pretty neat. But is it worth buying it? i know its gonna run on windows 7 ( which i love) and its a 32 bit based. it has two touch screens . From what I've heard it will be out on August, anyone has any idea of how much it will cost? ah and what are your thoughts about it hmn?

And I though netbooks were small... It looks awesome, but I do not think the price will be lower than a couple hundred dollars.

If I didn't have a netbook already I would seriously consider getting one. I'm a multi monitor addict so having two displays in a netbook form factor would be awesome.

Ouch. At that price I would much rather have Thinkpad X201 or loaded Alienware M11x.

We also got confirmation from Toshiba that the somewhat-of-a-concept-PC will be hitting retail channels in August, including Amazon, and will cost $1,100.

Ugh no. It looks gross. And at an outrageous price. If it were priced at $500 then maybe. But that's a maybe. I still like using an old fashioned keyboard and mouse. That's a tablet not a laptop anywho. hehe.
