I don't think Asus is the first with a HD screen and Broadcom decoder card. If I remember right, Dell has had one for some time. Then again, that one probably doesn't have the N450
I spent $100 more and got the ASUS 1201N. Has dual core Atom 330, Nvidia ION and a 12" screen. It even came with Win 7 Home Premium instead of the crappy Starter Edition.
