If you're wondering where you've seen that before, I'll give you a hint- they're called laptops:
Screen? Check! Built-in keyboard? Check! Aluminum case? Check! Congratulations, Zagg! You've successfully reproduced an existing product, only with fewer capabilities!*** And you know what else? I think Zagg knows exactly what they've done:
Or, to quote:
Large, flat base allows for use on a soft or uneven surface such as a lap or on a bed [emphasis added]
I trust my technolust, but every now and then I have to wonder about our collective sanity.
* I should note that as much as I find them neat, I think that they only really make sense as a sort of low-power laptop replacement. They're too heavy, with inadequate battery life, to serve as an e-reader when devices like the Kindle and the Nook are available.
** Specifically, I received a marketing e-mail from ThinkGeek.
*** Also, arguably, for less money but you can get a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a 320 gig hard disk for $1199, whereas an iPad with 64 gigs of storage plus the Zagg case will run you about $800. So, really, if you need that kind of performance, the laptop is more cost-effective.
