The S210 sounds ideal for me. I have a Chromebook which is perfect as a coffee table computer, but I miss a few actual applications other than the browser, like a decent Skype/instant messenger client. The only thing that would make it better in my opinion would be to use Windows RT and an ARM chip instead of Intel.

It's because Windows 8 is for people with open mind somewhat more than for those busy mixing drinks or smoking pot ;)
