Well guys, this is as close as it gets to a Z killer for me. I've been (and still am) an avid Toshiba Libretto user for the past few years. The 50CT, 70CT and an imported M3 got me by in an 8'' x 4.5'' 1'' form factor that was easily touch type for even my large hands.

Everun Review from UMPCPortal

Last month RAON released the Everun Note. In a very similar form factor (a cm shorter and a cm taller) it boasts the following:
2 USB ports
1 USB mini B port (for use as a hard drive: you can actually plug this laptop into another PC and it shows up as a portable HD)
SD card slot
USIM card slot (currently there isn't a 3G /HDSPA receiver in the laptop, though the pads are there!)
PCIe slot
60 GB HD
1GB ram
Dual Core AMD 1.2Ghz proc (which is faster than it sounds; this is leaps better than the current net book stuff)
ATI something or another beefy GFX card, I can't remember

At any rate, it's something I can touchtype on again that is pretty dang small.
The ups are size and power, the downs are the funny mouse and battery life (a pale 2.5 hrs), but for Libretto lovers, I think this is the next thing. Check it out and discuss.

I have to say I like the Everun Note quite a lot. I also liked the new Fujitsu U820 but the Note is very much cheaper and in some ways superior.
Whilst I also like the various "netbooks" like the MSI Wind and various eee's, I couldn't imagine carrying them around like I do my Zaurus and Nokia 800; however, the Note would need to manage a better battery life for me to consider replacing them.

Found a good review of the E-N, final page is a good summary:
