$315 for a quad core celeron with a 1366x768 11.6" touch screen and 4 gigs of ram. I'm kinda tempted by this myself, I want something for steam streaming and my first gen atom netbook doesn't cut it.

Not sure on sales but the asus book t100 is pretty decent it's about 350$
If its elitist to want decent performance, accountability, and class knowledge from the people you play with... SIGN ME UP!

Just so you know, that's regular price, not sale price TC.

The t100 isn't bad either. I guess it just depends on what you think would be more important to him, power or portability.

10" convertible vs 11.6" laptop
1.2ghz quad vs 2.0
2 gigs of ram vs 4

The MSRP on the dual core version of that laptop is $330

He's not going to do much power-intensive. He's the head of a small upstar film studio, so he mostly just needs e-mail, word documents, and the occasional picture/video editing (but nothing intensive like adding visual effects; just fixing redeye, etc, from photo shoots)

The extra ram would help with pictures if he's working with high quality images but it doesn't sound like it'd be absolutely necessary, I wouldn't recommend any real editing on either though as I doubt the screens are too terribly accurate.

In that case, average price, not a good sale price.

Anyway, go with the K200MA unless you think he needs a tablet. Best Buy has it for $280 right now.

Yeah, he mostly uses his desktop for heavy editing.
