Who is even in the market for a $400-500 keyboard? IMO, this ranks up there in overpriced useless peripherals with the killer K1 network card.
Looks like a mac keyboard too with the anodized aluminum.

You're paying a surplus solely because it's a newer design.
I expect prices of this device to fall to $300 after a year or so...

Looks like either they learned their lesson from the T91's unspectacular launch, or they just don't care about the T91...

dauthus - Don't forget that this device is supposed to be operatable as a fully functional PC.

I will be interested to see Tom's review when it's released...reminds me somewhat of the slew of 'internet' appliances that came out in the early part of this decade. Maybe I can grandma to upgrade finally!

Uh, it's a computer... in a keyboard. I'm not at all interested in it but if it had some wireless HDMI built in and came with a receiver I would be all over it.

Even though this is out of my price range for a comp I am curious as to what OS it will have on it. I did some research and this is what I have found as far as the specs go:
"The keyboard is packing a 5-inch built-in display, a 1.6 GHz Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB SSD, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. As far as ports, it's got wireless HDMI, 2 USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, and audio in/out"

I'm not too crazy about this for myself, but I have to say it would be great for someone who doesn't need a whole lot of processing power but likes to save space and doesn't want to have a huge messy tangle of wires behind their desk (like I do lol). Plus it looks pretty nice too.

yeah, this would be great for a media center PC if it had a bit more balls... maybe an ion version would be worthwhile. for the price, i personally would still rather build a cheap microatx rig in a media center case and get a $50 wiresless keyboard/mouse and call it a day...

pushed back, would that be because Microsoft is trying to figure out how to stuff 7 in it and force ASUS to drop Linux
