The outside of the Ubuntu Tab is made of a alloy with a sandblasted finish, the feel is pretty comfortable, despite the unit being thick.
We we not able to confirm the weigh, but in out hands it seem as light as the iPad.
Booting time was pretty fast and the overall system was very responsive.
Although there are gravity sensors built in to the design, they we not active when we had a try, but we are assured that they will be once production starts.

    It will always be good to have gnu/linux running on a pc of what ever kind. It would be better if we can get some cheaper models.

    Great! Where to buy it in US? ;-)

      It seems development for it may have stopped!

        I don’t know if you get notifications of replies on here Andi, but I have one of these tablets, and they ship with windows 7 installed on them. Not too bad, though the N455 is definitely a little dated. Chrome is a bit slow on here, but overall the tablet is sufficient for what you’d use a netbook for.

    Hi, is the tablet version of ubuntu netbook edition 10-10 available somewhere to download? It would be great to try on my tablet since the huge delay for google honeycomb.

      You can download the OS from Linux for free, but you will need the drivers for the screen.
