The $99 Cherrypal laptop - it runs Linux and you can buy 
it RIGHT NOW (but is it for real, and are these actually 
being shipped to those who order them?)

,----[ Quote ]
| The way the company both hits the $99 price 
| point and makes a little profit at the same 
| time is to a) ship with free, open-source 
| Linux and b) offer minimum specs but actually 
| build the laptops with whatever the cheapest 
| components are at any given time.


Make your Linux netbook battery last longer

,----[ Quote ]
| All laptop users have something in common: we 
| want our device's batteries to last longer. 
| Whether it's for the daily commute or a long 
| flight, an extra 30 minutes of power means an 
| extra 30 minutes of entertainment.
| If you're running a Linux-based distribution 
| on your netbook, there's a lot you can do to 
| squeeze every last negatively charged ion 
| from your power source. Here we're going to 
| cover the best techniques that we've 
| discovered. 



NorhTec Gecko Surfboard: $99 Linux PC in a keyboard

,----[ Quote ]
| The oft-delayed ASUS Eee Keyboard is a great
| concept â squeezing everything from a nettop
| into a QWERTY form-factor â but what if your
| computing ambitions are even more moderate?
| NorhTec reckon they have the product for you
| in the shape of the Gecko Surfboard,
| outwardly a regular QWERTY keyboard but
| actually packed with a 1GHz x86 system-on-
| chip (SoC), VGA and composite video outputs,
| 10/100 ethernet and optional WiFi b/g or even
| 3G.


Dell intros new low-cost ultrathin, Vostro V13

,----[ Quote ]
| Dell has introduced a new low-cost ultrathin
| notebook, the Vostro V13. The system closely
| resembles Dell's recently released flagship
| Adamo, except it's lighter and a grand
| cheaper. The Vostro V13 is about 0.65in thin,
| weighs 3.5lbs and starts at $449 with Ubuntu
| 9.04 or $599 with Windows 7 Home Premium.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
