Considering purchasing one for $300 and would be using it solely for writing.

Wonder if anybody has one or has heard anything about it.

There's supposed to be a new one soon with more memory and a wider screen. If you're using it for writing, the wider screen will be worth waiting for. I can't see how you could get used to that keyboard though.

Still waiting for Slackmo to delete this thread.

Yeah, the keyboard is my main concern. The wider screen would be nice, though i could care less about memory. Actually, more memory just invites distraction I don't need while writing.

Friend got one over X-mas. Mostly for e-mail and basic office apps while traveling. He ended up getting a laptop a couple of months ago. It's the sort of thing that's cool in theory, until you get frustrated with the limitations. The keyboard was a problem too.
