The Zune HD is probably the best known Tegra device out right now. According to everything I've read, it is rather powerful device, that's still lightweight and power efficient. If nVidia is making this even better, than I can't wait for the second Zune HD to use it.

Wow, the graphics would be amazing with the Tegra 2, so let's hope the DS2 uses it and comes out late 2010/early 2011 (wouldn't be surprised if it's another 2 years though).

I recently got one, and I have to say - it has impressive graphics and battery life. I'm definitely impressed by the Tegra 1, so as long as Tegra 2 is similar (with improvements of course), it will be a great setup.

" It is ironic is that they talk about their advantage is the same exact argument we have in the PC space regards to Intel."

But, for some reason I cannot understand, AMD bought ATI, so I guess they know something about GPU... which Intel does not. And also about CPU, which YOU do not. Nvidia can't say AMD failed because it never tried.

I don't need computer intensive, and neither do many other people...
More computer intensive programs only use more energy, lower battery life, lower performance, and don't guarantee on an easier to understand program. If I can browse folders with a basic linux, no need for all the extra visuals Windows brings.
I honestly hardly use a windows app anymore that isn't available on Linux.

If I can choose between $200 netbook, that is like current atom processor netbooks, and has 12 hours of battery life, or choose a better performing netbook for 600, with only 3 hours of battery life, you can bet I will go for the $200 one!

We want to deliver a Web computing experience that is better than on your PC. Today, if you take your PC and go to the Internet, you want to see high-definition in everything. You want to have fast response times and switching between your windows, you want to see high-definition videos, you want to see high-definition images, so, your experience is about HD Internet. Our objective with Tegra is to deliver the same experience to your handheld devices.
... What the hell? They just said they want to give you something better, but they're objective is to give you the same on a handheld. I'm confused here. Pray tell, what was the point of that paragraph?

Tegra 2 will be a new product with a new version number. That's what you can expect.

Until Tegra runs on platforms other than Windows CE, it is completly useless to me.

All I want is the Tegra chipset in a netbook running linux.

That's cool, enjoy your ASCII games. I mean who wants to have a laptop on the go that they can watch movies on, or play games, or edit media? Computing power is overated. Typewriters are the ultimate on battery life.

I'll take linux over windows any day when it comes to server deployment. But even popular distros like Ubunto fail in comparison to Windows in terms of practicality for your typical average Joe's daily use. I know I know linux can do anything Windows can (but is it practical?), all you have to do is Load X, Y, and Z, then edit X, remove Z, reload W and run X.

Tegra, Nvidia's system-on-chip that powers the Zune HD delivers multimedia capabilities that, for the most part, are unmatched in the PMP realm.
I'm guessing that PMP stands for Portable Media Player in this context but then again, who knows?

A little less reliance on assuming your readers are in tune with every abbreviation and jargonized term would be a step in the right direction.
