Zorin PC

After waiting like Job for the pre-installed Linux machines we deserved, we've arrived at a literal Garden of Eden full of worthy choices. A compelling new offering is the Zorin PC, a new mini-laptop that runs its own Linux distro, Zorin OS. On the hardware side, the Zorin PC's sexy selling point is its rotatable touchscreen display, which allows one to use the device as a regular laptop, a tablet device, an e-reader or a media center. The display rotates 180°, allowing one to share pictures or videos with friends. Folding it down as a tablet makes it feel like an Amazon Kindle. The touchscreen uses digitizer technology, which lets one take handwritten notes. On the software side, one can order a Windows 7/Zorin OS dual-boot option, the latter of which comes in Home, Educational and Business editions. A software repository is included for installing tons of additional software programs.

Couldn't find price or availability information on the web site -- did I miss something?

Weird...

Strange, it seems there should be a link to the store between "Gallery" and "Support"...

Looks like it's primarily for the European market.
