    Post New ARM based Netbook running on Ubuntu

    Well I am sucker for something that is new and that isn't the same old thing and this being a netbook running on ARM got my attention and not to mention the price point is going to be around 199 to 250...hoping for 199. Plus the icing on the cake is it runs on my favorite OS, Ubuntu!

    It's form factor and the design is just awesome, looks like a little paper back book.

    I am sure to pick on up when it comes out middle of this year!
    How about you guys?
    Yeah I know pirated copy of XP is free, but so is Ubuntu and it's LEGAL!

    Looks interesting i quite like the P book (although i wont be telling people the P stands for purse...) The Pandora will be using ARM though so i may just get that even if it is not quite as powerful.

    Awesome! Looks much lighter than its Atom counterparts.

    Those are freakin' sweet. I have been waiting for a Netbook, because I knew something "bigger" would come along. Im definately keeping an eye on these ARM based netbooks.

    So what exactly does the ARM architecture offer?

    Arm outperforms atom by miles at similar CPU freqs, however you are probably never going to see arm cpus faster than 2ghz because of architecture limitations

    So depending on how these are implemented, you could be seeing something that performs better than an atom and offers a couple of days battery life.

    Fan free operation is a bonus. They are essentially scaled up smart phone hardware. I'm impressed.

    Finally, they got the price right. I'd spend €200 on something like that. Sure beats the standard €600 netbooks I see everywhere. I like it
