New Nvidia drivers need to be classified as ad ware because they install shortcuts for the Portal demo through Steam on your desktop without asking.

I feel it is a bad trend that drivers for your expensive hardware now include ads.

I'd definitely say it did. I remember getting Vista and THEN figuring out my 8800GTS wasn't supported. I was pissed off. I blamed it more on Nvidia than Microsoft, but feel they should have told companies to get their act together. Needless to say I visited guru3d.com everyday.

Not that anyone here would realize this but that desktop wallpaper on the top left notebook is from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. One of the Best animes out there.

Wow a laptop that fits in an envelope. What's the purpose? Just what are you going to do with a device that was designed to be severely limited in functionality? Hey at least it has Intel Inside...

I did find some of the ideas for future notebooks to be rather ingenious, but I don't think making them thinner that the MacBook Air is a good idea, since there are already claims that it was accidentally tossed out!

My guess is that model had the $590 version...all that extra fabric and such.

As far as the flooring... it will certainly make catching theives more Scooby-Doo-ish

There's no time like the future.

Shouldn't that be knife REpelling?

Although knife propelling sounds interesting. Just make sure you don't wear it inside out...
