The worlds first Android laptop that runs everything awesomely well already!
Asus has an Android and Qualcomm powered smartbook as well, though Asus is hiding it at this point.
Acer, HP, all Nvidia Tegra based laptops, Texas Instruments based devices and Freescale based devices, all are launching with Android support.
In this video you can see how fast the current implementation of a browser in an Android laptop loads pages, while they still have optimizations to do, and I think they should try to get a full Google Chrome running on these, with support for an unlimited amount of tabs (though no need for all tabs to be active and heavy in the RAM memory).
Nvidia Tegra: HD streaming and Flash support demonstrated by Gordon Grigor, Director og Mobile Software
An amazing demonstration by Gordon Grigor Director og Mobile Software at Nvidia (the software engineering lead in developing Tegra solution!) of the ways Nvidia accelerates web browsing, flash, HD video decoding, HD video streaming from the Internet and more.
I was very impressed today I interviewing the Nvidia executives and engineers, they are insanely confident about their Tegra ARM implementation, even though the current demonstration of the Tegra technology does NOT use the latest ARM Cortex processor which is 4x faster for things like a browser compared to ARM11!!!! Nvidia is processing many things from the browser using the GPU! Can you believe that? Rendering of browser contents, scrolling, font antialiasing, image rendering, flash animations, flash videos, all are taken care of by the Nvidia GPU! Look for my videos of all that, being uploaded now and filming more the next couple or three of days.

This is it, the revolutionary LCD screen by Pixel Qi that turns your netbook into a Kindle by the flip of a switch. As you can see in this video, thanks to Pixel Qi technology, your next LCD screens can now be very usable outdoors as well under the sunlight, in a very high resolution black and white mode and also keep a full color and bright back light indoors mode.
This is a demonstration from the first batch of the first working prototypes of this screen, and as you can see, it already looks amazing. Mass production of these screens are planned to be launched soon and should be available in any netbook (and later other devices such as smartphones) as long as the manufacturers decide that they want to integrate it in their products.

Review showing this very compact and light 3LED projector, one of the first in the world with built-in USB host functionality to playback DivX mpeg4 files from a USB flash memory or from a FAT32 formatted hard drive. It has great colors and performs great for its size. Having a built-in USB reader means you can play movies on it directly without the need to use a computer or a video player device to playback the video formats. Yet the BenQ Joybee GP1 mini projector does not yet support Mp3 audio nor AC3 audio in DivX/XviD Mpeg4 files, thus audio contents has to be re-encoded mostly thus far to the PCM or the AAC format. BenQ can update the firmware so I will update this description if I hear any confirmation by them that they are adding Mp3 audio support on it.
These type of super compact 3LED projectors are getting cheap enough, bright enough, sharp enough, with very nice colors and easy to use enough so I think that it may become a very popular product.
