    Maybe it doesn't fit on YOUR lap. But as somebody who isn't the size of a 10 year old boy, I think I'd be fine with it on my lap.

      You will have to wait until it gets closer to coming out. All price is speculation as of right now. I will only take what Asus says as fact when it comes to price.

    You all may have convinced yourselves that you are jaded and this magical folding box is not the dopest thing you've seen this week. It's like being bored with meeting a new superhero... even if that superhero is an upgraded clone and his boot up is a bit choppy atm... give him a minute to patch and wake up. Sheesh.
