The new Dual core Atom processor means that the device has much better performance and can handle play back of HD video without the battery drain.

This new design looks really great and make me wounder why no one thought of this before. Personally I think windows running on a device of this form factor is going to be fantastic and ideally suited for Windows based devices…. I can definitely see this replacing my iPad.
