A lot of money but big specs. I have been watching this company for a while and there has been a lot of speculation about whether they are legit. I noticed that they had a booth at CES.

Atom Chip

Imagine a 6.8GHz Quantum Processor, 1TB (that is Tera Byte which is 1000 Giga Bytes) of memory and 2TB of non-volitile memory instead of an HDD.

If these guys are for real it will certainly shake up the whole computer industry!

Nope, couldn't find it - but I read on Engadget or somewhere else that someone actually saw this running - but I don't believe until I see it...

I wouldn't waste my money... The specs themselves are very fishy yet alone the fact that we have never heard them before.

as far as I know the largest hdd you can get is 1 terrabyte, and I doubt that it would be small enough to fit in a laptop.
also 6.8 ghz in a single chip sounds very far-fetched, and the largest laptop hard drive i have heard of is 100 gb, I would say this laptop is a scam

Not a hard drive but 'quantum optical' memory. Thats the thing this laptop is supposed to be based on optical technology.

If it was so powerful and so wonderful, then why hasnt it had more (any) fanfare from anyone but themselves. (Engadget/Geekzone etc etc)

and another thing, if theese guys have built a quantum computer for home or business use then it would be all over the news, not just in some website for geeks and a computer show, we would be seeing tv adverts and everything
