    Its a 1 ghz dual core nvidia Tegra 2 soc. Not a 2 ghz dual core. And its way too expensive. My decked out $550 notion ink adam should be here any day now.

      i’d have to question whether the adam will be here any day based on the games they’ve been playing. initial delivery Jan9th, then 15th then 29th. don’t be surprised that it be pushed further out.
