So the Jetbook color is a 9.7" screen with a non-color resolution of 1600x1200 but because of the Triton color layer, the effective resolution is actually 800x600 and to be honest, from what I have seen in photos and videos, it doesn't look all that good at such a large screen size.

Personally, I'd prefer a 9.7" screen with a resolution of 1600x1200 without the color layer. That would look so much nicer.
But one other use pops up in my mind. The video show a monocrome copy of the Mona Lisa. I'd like a 16x20" (35x50 cm) wall hangable display, like a picture in a frame. Only one that take very little power and can have it's contents changed on a moment's notice. (Today I want Picasso, tomorrow I want Maxfield Parrish, the next day a photo of Hawaii, ect...) In color, of course...
