Linux Netbooks: They're Still Out There

,----[ Quote ]
| For example, Dell has expanded their offerings, 
| with desktop and laptop offerings in addition to 
| their Inspiron Mini 10v. The smaller (8.9" screen) 
| Dell Vostro A90 (formerly the Inspiron Mini 9v) 
| remains available starting at $219 factory direct.

An Amazing Coincidence or Something More Sinister?

,----[ Quote ]
| Hewlett-Packard also did something yesterday, 
| albeit very quietly. HP removed Linux entirely 
| from the part of their website where they sell 
| netbooks. The day Windows 7 became available 
| the HP Mi interface appears to have died a 
| quiet death. A visit to the HP Mini pages 
| reveals that HP is only offering "genuine" 
| Windows 7 and "genuine" Windows XP. I also 
| noticed that the HP Mini 110 also sports a new, 
| higher starting price, a full US $25 more than 
| when I ordered mine earlier this month. I have 
| to assume the Windows license is part of the 
| higher price.



Five reasons to buy an Android laptop...

,----[ Quote ]
| The arrival of products like the Archos 5
| media tablet and now the dual-booting Acer
| Aspire One D520 are likely the beginning of
| more and more Android-based machines
| arriving on our shelves. The mobile version
| of the OS hasn't quite got going just yet
| and doesn't do the whole advertising job on
| behalf of Google computers at this stage
| but, just because the jury's still out for
| the main body of the public, it doesn't
| necessarily mean that an Android-running
| laptop isn't the way to go. So, is it worth
| chancing fame, fortune and street cred as
| an early adopter or Android PCs a fad worth
| giving a miss?
