Paul G Allen’s Vulcan is coming out with a new machine called the FlipStart. The Aluminum encased MiniPC runs on a 1GHz processor with Windows XP. The display screen is 1024×600, and has an integrated camera. Best of all, the battery is supposed to last all-day. Another cool feature is the small, low-power display on the outside of the unit for reading email, MP3’s etc. Unfortunately, it is not available yet, and there is no estimated price on the unit yet… but I am starting to drool.
