I'm glad the battery will last a long time on that POS; they'll need ever minute for as slow as it will be. Netbooks part deux? Meh.
This device is aimed at Chromebooks (with the obvious intention to use MS Web-Apps) so performance is probably not it's priority - it's a "good enough" device for people with minimalist needs. A quad-core 1.6 GHz AMD A4 Micro-6400T is better specs than the HP Chromebook, and so perhaps won't be *THAT* bad, but the proof of that will be in the final product.
However, my actual point in referring to it was that it's another example of MS now being prepared to give away Windows in order to capture market-share for their "devices & services", so it wouldn't be surprising if they also gave it away to Munich, as they know that it's Office which is the real attraction.
