    If it's not an active digitizer, its a non-starter. Is that a backlit keyboard I see?

    Looks good to me. Less than 60 days to go until these things are released. I'm like kid waiting for Christmas.

    I'm chomping on anything plastic just waiting for these things to appear! AggHhhHhhhh. Most of all I just want to actually 'see' the MS Surface device before selling next doors dog to buy one

    How is 2.9lbs too heavy? My Vaio TT notebook is around 2.7 lbs, and my Thinkpad Tablet is I think 2lbs. I would say Vaio is just as transportable as the Thinkpad.

    What I really want to know is what digitizer it uses, and what price this will start at since it's using ulv cpu, like the other ultrabooks.

    With 1080p and Ivy Bridge, I'm assuming price would be $1000-$1100 or so for the i3 and other base specs. I have mixed feelings about Sony after the Vaio F (good screen and keyboard, hit-and-miss bundled software, awful onboard camera and unremarkable sound for a "multimedia" machine), but I have to admit, this is a stylish and sensible package, and Apple simply has nothing comparable (in my experience, a lot of people cross-shop Sony and Apple).

    My Acer is 2.1lbs and its tiresome to cart that around so the Sony being heavier will be worse. Too heavy for me, may be OK for others, as you point out.

    For comparison, the MacBook Air 13 also weighs 2.9 lbs and is less impressive and versatile. I think it's just a matter of perspective as to how much you want stuff to weigh.
