It has the same size and weight as a regular netbook though it’s not indicated what OS is pre-installed. So, instead of a regular video player (or cable TV) hooked up to a huge LCD screen on the wall, you can have this one.

    That is a great innovation and can really come along with your LCD TV.

    ahhh… i thought that was a wireless router! lolz!

    all i can say is that, performance might not be great… and also, the pix didn’t include the “wiring” setup thus, this unit may look ugly with all the wires cluttered on it…

    another thing is that, this unit is disposable! how can you change the motherboard or other parts on that unit? thus, it aint earth friendly.

    i’ll stick with big bloated CPU that i have here… its easy to upgrade some things and customize your own setup.

    I assume that this product is cheaper than the msi netbook since it doesnt have a monitor attach to it. I bought my msi netbook last january and so far I’m satisfied with its performance. The new netbooks of msi has great designs and I’d really like to have one of those. I think I’ll sell my msi u100 and buy a new model
