Can you game on them? haha. Kidding. I think I am going to buy one. They'd be pretty bad ass.

Same here. Then I thought about those laser keyboards that they make for pcs, and I'm not sure if they make them for USB.

I would rather get a sony mini notebook because it has the power of a regular notebook to play relativly fair games, movies, and music. But it is very umm... expensive... mildly.

I'd need tactile feedback if I was using this to type on. I don't like using a touchscreen on anything bigger than a phone.

That's in a different class altogether. If you were browsing in that category, you'd find the Lenovo Thinkpad X300 or the Apple MacBook Air. All of which are pretty expensive.

yeah, I guess that wouldn't be the most comfortable thing ever. But how BA would that be to pull that out in a business meeting?

Considering people use expensive ultraportable notebooks during meetings with excessively long batteries, you'd look pretty pathetic carrying one of these in a business meeting.
