I searched for something specifically of that name, but came up empty 
with a bunch of user accounts on various social networking sites.

Looking at the specs on that device, its awfully expensive for what you 
get.  $700 for a fairly low end mobile Core2, 1-2GB of memory, and an 
anemic GPU.  You can build that yourself for for around $400.  If you 
really want pre-built, you may as well pick up a Mac Mini.  The base one 
is cheaper, faster, starts with 2GB of memory, and has a video card 
capable of VDPAU, for whatever the CPU can't handle.
