I know i spent a few hours tweeking my ASUS netbook to play WOW. Played horrible when i started, but with enough tweeking to the actual notebook it plays pretty dang good. I didnt have to strip WOW to lowest setting (but I did turn some of it down, its stil higher setting then many players on desktop use). It plays it just fine, in fact smooth enough I would never know it was a netbook if it was pumped to my LCD. Its suprising what people will do to figure out how to play WOW. The problem i see is they mention WoW is "playble" but still some small stutters.. WOW is not a high end game. It still plays on some pretty old hardware. And if WoW is only "playable" I think newer games are going to crush this. Of course beta hardware is beta, and its a cool concept. I must agree the Keyboard is very cool ever since that one that cost $1500 with the LCD keys I hve always wanted one.
My single gripe with these systems (netbooks/small phones etc) is the screen. evrything is designed on PC (or TV) standards so the 1280X600 screens are a pain in the butt. I use a program that artificially stretched my Netbook screen to 1280X1024 (yes it can distort a tiny bit) so most games work fine on it. I use it for ALOT of DOSBOX games D-FEND (dosbox launcher) has made those old dosbox games so slick.
If this thing isnt outrgaously priced ( i thinkit will be, that keyboard alone migt be the cost of a netbook) I would think aobut one for sure.. I see a $5-600 Price tag.. to much IMHO but who knows.
