I personally don't think this is slick what with new models out there, but it looks like Newegg is clearing out the older ones if someone's on the fence. I have the i3 alpha and it's a sweet little machine for the LR that's also silent and has a small footprint.
Que all the "you can build it cheaper (failing to mention not at the same size)" comments.
If you play with the configuration some are on sale and include a probably crap windows tablet.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.
