I too have my eye on the Touchbook. The only reason I have not put in my
order is I still

have not read a good third party review. I have not heard anything bad,
but the vast majority

of reviews I have seen lack detail.  I am debating on if I should just
buy one. Touchbook 

has a 15day no-questions-asked return policy that looks rather tempting.
I am so close to the

edge; I really want one but at the same time I have been burned by
products I know little



If you get one, please post a review. ;-)


Have fun!
