Is the R50A for you? According to Asus, it’s "the one indispensable gadget for everyone" thanks to its GPS, 3G/3.5G, webcam, and "full notebook functionality" features. It also has a built-in TV tuner. Everyone needs a TV tuner.

The R50A scooped up a 2008 International CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award in the Computer Hardware category. That’s all well and good but I can’t seem to shake the fact that there’s no keyboard. That kind of kills the whole "full notebook functionality" aspect. The thought of using a 4.8-inch touchscreen is only mildly appealing to me. Maybe less.
