    You can check our CES coverage to see what we had to say. Otherwise, the units are shipping soon, so we'll have more detailed thoughts when we get a review unit.

    I wonder how battery life is. ok, I give into the weight because of the screem, but battery life has to be at least 3hrs with full settings except cpu.

    I think that it looks good, the screen size only being 12.1 inches i am not so sure about but that is the only thing.

    I think that the memory may have a maximumof 4,096 of ram which if that is true that is the first that i have seen of this in notebooks and pretty amazing.

    It isn't out in the UK yet though and i wonder when/if it is going to be.

    It is a rather thick beast (4 cm). Try to write on that on a desk for an extended period.

    One thing really holding me back is the graphic card.....It onlly has .....
    "Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 with 8MB-128MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory"

    Am I right in assuming this means weaker graphic performance in comparison to the M4?????

    Damn......dissapointing

    well the battery is about 5hrs they say. considering the r15 said to have 4hrs had 3hrs whith my settings I bet the m400 has about 3.5 with one core running.

    I also wonder what this will mean in regards to video and photo editing. I will be using my table for some heavy photoshop work as well as multimedia and web design. That means flash, etc....

    I'm guessing that a dedicated gpu would make a drastic difference....
