At the event, Acer couldn’t confirm if testing had included running its bundled AV application, but we’ll let you know soon enough when our review sample appears.
Typical laptop latch at the front
Equipped with similar innards, Acer’s Iconia W100 and A100 7in models won’t be appearing until May or beyond. However, both the W500 and A500 Wi-Fi tablets will be in the shops on 8th April priced at £449. The W500 keyboard can be bought separately for £90 or purchased with the tablet for £529 (Wi-Fi) or £579 (Wi-Fi + 3G).
Although there is no pricing as yet for the A500 Wi-Fi + 3G version, Acer is confident that its Android 3.0 model will be shipping alongside its Windows counterpart next month. Whether Google has other ideas for when we get to taste its Honeycomb, we shall see. ®

"You're with your cool friends - would you dare to get this contraption out of its bag, while their poking and sweeping on their iPads?"
Sounds like your nights out with friends are an absolute riot!
We never used to call them 'nipple mouse' - always called them something that ladies usually say men can never find.
Rubber pointing stick...
"green, ThinkPad-style rubber pointing stick" - I thin you mean a nipple mouse, like those found on older laptops, I replaced the rubber cap on one of mine not that long ago
True and Sad
It's quite sad how true the OP's statement really is. However, if you've spied the Samsung 8.9" and 10.1" follow-ups to the Galaxy Tab (which was terrible btw), you'd likely be singing a different tune in the way of competing tablets.
IBM trademarked the name TrackPoint
but other names include TouchStyk. Other names can be found in the relevant Wikipedia article, and many other good information sources.
IBM's name was the original, though, as they developed it to a product even if they did not invent it.
