    Nice move to 2.5″ hard drives (big SSD’s here we come), and if it does use an IPS screen, that will be a great boon, because the screen fades badly at off angles on the 2740p, so that writing on the screen is tough unless it is directly in front of you and not tilted off axis. I’m still not happy lack of DVI/HDMI output on the unit itself. I know, I’ve heard form multiple sources that it needs to stay backward compatible with the ever-present old office projectors and their VGA resolution; but isn’t that what dongles are for?

    Now, if only they could shave another 1/2″ off the thickness, and $500 off the price, THEN we’re talking. Still, it is another good step in the evolution of the Tablet PC
