Looks good to me. I'm still trying to decide which UMPC to get, and this one seems atleast ok for gaming. The graphics card is really awful for a DX9 card, but atleast it should still play oldish games alright. Might even be good for woirk. ;)

didn't you read!?

(holds cross, garlic in vistas face)
can you put xp/linux on there?
Oh ya! With Vista and 1 Gig of RAM, you'll have 200MB to play games in after the OS is loaded :lol:

At 1.5 lbs, I don't think it'd be too comfortable for extended gaming sessions, anyway...

The windows XP tablet edition is $50 less. There won't be a linux version because MS is a partner to samsung in regards to UMPCs.

I think the tiny keys would ruin most games, but the stylus would make some RTS ok.
it looks cool, but that thing on the left (joystick/mouse/whatever) looks horrible to use, very small (wonder if its analog). i guess having a stylus and hi-res touch screen makes up for the weird joystick.
