Interesting they are showing Microsoft Origami for UMPCs.

I don't have one, but would love to, as I think it would make a wonderful secondary display for a laptop. If it were to support USB3, even better! However, the cost! If it were under $200, it might be in the range of buying, but close to $300 is the same as getting a netbook.
