One auction, with 7 bids currently up to $2700, has the following:

Here are the specs:
2nd Generation Intel Core i5
Samsung Super PLS 1366x768 display
UEFI BIOS

Neurotic fools that buy into this "just to have it first" are 1. bad decision makers, 2. rash and irrational, 3. idiots and 4. should NEVER be behind the big red button that decides the fate of us all.




After JUST CHECKING EBAY.........there is only 1. Dummies, no guarantee, no warranty, no recourse and frankly, not much use as of yet and worth MAYBE 500 bucks when it is actually released next year.

You know what they say...A fool and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.
