There is always the Celeron and Pentium based Bay-Trail devices, which support real SSD; but, unfortunately Sony(Flip 11a) was the only one to offer such cpu with a digitizer(n-trig) I think 512gb SSD was optional in Asia, while most places had a max of 256gb as an option. The unfortunate bit is the lack luster battery life(5 hours for an 11in that size is not good in my book), or else it's seems like a very nice device. If it weren't for the battery life it would be my current machine. On a semi-related note, do you think Cherry Trail will be enough of an improvement to justify waiting a few months? Will quad core now be standard? What about 4gb of ram?
