Ramdisk! It’s been quite some time since I’ve last heard of this. The benchmarks are quite insane, true, but they are not really an apple-to-apple comparison. You already have the RAM installed in your machine, and I believe the folks at Adobe are smart enough to take advantage of it when developing applications like Premiere. Check the RAM usage when you are editing a video – it’s probably close to 100%. Premiere will keep everything it can fit in RAM to use that mind-blowing 25.6GB/s speed DDR3 chips offer and work as fast as it can. Also, during editing the media is decompressed and takes massive amount of drive space,you’d fill an 8GB Ramdisk with as little as a couple of minutes of footage.
I wouldn’t expect much, but if you’d decide to try anyway, I’d love to hear how it worked.
If not, just remember to have an SSD for video editing. A fast one. Or two in raid.

I’d expect by ‘two 1080p cameras’ they mean:
1. The RGB (colour) 1080p camera used for skype/taking pictures/regular camera stuff, and
2. The IR camera used as part of the 3d depth mapping sensor, which also apparently is 1080p, to make the depth mapping more accurate then it was before, and thus allow the new kinect to better track the players motion.
The second one is hardly anything the consumer should be concerned about, but this does not sound like a marketing exploit.
I agree with every one of the points of your wishlist, but I’d add three more:
1. Mouse support
2. Hardware-based screen capture, like the PS4 – love this concept!
3. Half-life 3 on launch day!!!

Why is the phrase “allowing it to open in a regular laptop mode” used to describe this o_O? In “regular laptop mode” there is place to rest your wrists while using without a surface beneath. Like on a lap. Hence the name, “lap-top”. And it’s not just about resting your tired hands, it’s about anchoring the machine to the lap to make it stable.
Don’t get me wrong, I do see application to this innovation, and it is an interesting step towards making touch screens a more essential and accessible part of the PC experience – pulling the screen closer to the keyboard will definitely make touch operation a lot more comfortable when in use on the table. But let’s not lie to ourselves that this is without sacrifice, because a “laptop” this is not.
It’s a Ludum Dare entry :) – a contest where you have 48 hours to make a game from scratch. You do everything – the mechanics, the sound and graphics yourself, and have to follow a theme – this time it was minimalism. I’ve taken part too, and so did some of my friends
