The MacBook Air Netbook That Will Never Be

When I saw the thumbnail images for the Nurian X40Kris I instantly thought: "MacBook netbook!" Then I saw it open and I thought: "Wait, no, this is a MacBook Air netbook!" We can only wish.

In reality, this is not a netbook, but a quite powerful pocket dictionary—79 languages—with a 4.3-inch, QWERTY keyboard, Xvid video playback support, Adobe Flash, PDF reader, and MP3 player for $US257. It can even run games. I'm guessing it uses our good old 15-yo friend Linux. [Nurian via Akihabara News]
