I really don't get the point of this laptop. It's super slim, light, and looks great, good size, etc etc. However it's ridiculously underpowered and super expensive. I mean an atom powered netbook for 1300+? That's crazy. When you have things like the Macbook Pro 13, and the HP Envy 13 that are slightly larger/heavier, but are incredibly more powerful for comparable price, you have to really wonder what the heck Sony is thinking.

I can see this being similar to the Vaio P, which had quite a bit of marketing buzz behind it, but was really targeted at no one, and I haven't heard/seen anything about it since CES. Total dud, just like this will be.
