    Too expensive, half the price then maybe a few takers. I just can’t see who will buy them.

      I’m with you there. At least there were a couple of reasonably innovative touches this time (like the DJ pad), but why would you bother otherwise. It’s not a particularly premium feeling product… well at least the last one wasn’t. I’d still much prefer a laptop, and preferably without Windows 8.
