The front page on their UK, US and French sites say 'Meet the future of MiniPC', but the links don't lead anywhere.

Kind of disappointed that it is not a new PMP.

Running Windows 7, not such a good idea (price)???

I doubt that's a 9'' screen. It can't be portable.

I was guessing from the model name.... if 10.2 " netbook can be called portable... this one definitely looks portable.

While that may be true, there is still a hell of a lot the 5 can improve on, especially with that kind of hardware platform.
