EDIT:

I've done some more sleuthing and cleared up a whole bunch of stuff. So you don't have to try to decipher Japanese I've put everything I know about this here. And apologies for the previous formating, I did it on my mobile!

I don't know, I'm really liking this. Absolutely looks like a MacBook Air killer! Hopefully Toshiba comes to their senses an releases it in Europe & North America at the very least!
