  • Intel Atom N280 processor, 1.66GHz
  • 2GB RAM

  • 10.1 inch LED-backlit HD 16:9 display screen (1366x768)

There will be 500 units available and orders have to be sent in by 4th September. It's only available to Microsoft Tech.Ed New Zealand 2009 attendees and the NFR licence key will be provided during the event.
