Here's something no one's commented on, but I personally appreciate: you can put this thing in your pocket without that much trouble. With the kind of pants I normally wear (short or long), they're reasonably loose fitting with full size pockets. I can put the 7.7 in the front or back pocket and walk around, no problem. The back pocket is better because I put the on switch toward the top so that it sticks out of the pocket and won't be accidentally actuated. Of course, it's quite annoying (and droppable) to constantly take it out and re-pocket it like a standard size phone. But, for example, if you're in a public place and need to go to the bathroom, you can easily take the 7.7 with you for security, which you can't do so conveniently with a laptop. And I've done miles of walking with the 7.7 in my pocket rather than a bag so that I don't have that extra weight constantly tugging on my shoulder and neck. Yes, there's a certain amount of risk in putting it in your back pocket, but it's good to have this unexpected option.
