    EeePC 1225C or other linux netbook that ships to Belgium

    Hey

    I'm looking for a linux netbook. My first choise is the EeePC 1225C which would be perfect for me. But the only store where I can find this netbook is the Italian Fnac store -> http://www.fnac.it/Asus-Eee-1225C-BK...a659083?PID=10
    The problem is that they don't ship this to Belgium. My question is, is there a place where I can buy this netbook (preferably qwerty and not stupid Belgium azerty)?
    If not, are there other stores that sell linux netbooks (preferably Asus or Toshiba) that ship to Belgium?

    Thanks

    I have no idea about taxes shipping etc. but it looks like Amazon will ship to Europe if what you want is not available from Amazon's German or French sites.

    Amazon is not really an option, since I refuse to use/have a credit card. This noob store doesn't allow normal bank transfer, like every other store.

    The amazon version is no-OS, or Windows (at least the models on the U.S. Amazon page) - not that it seems to matter in this case.

    Asus 1225C only works with Ubuntu 12.04 in unity 2D. The onchip graphics of the Intel cedar trail cpu is from a separate licensed proprietor and only offers limited linux support. The sticker says "Intel Inside" but this is sadly not true. So Unity 3D does not work and may not ever be supported. Ubuntu 12.10 does not work at all. So beware all Intel Atom 2600 and 2800 chips.

    Take a look at the Asus f201e it has a 1.1 GHz Intel Celeron 847 processor and should be okay.
