Let's bump this up.

The specs may look slow but you should also know that in theory numbers aren't always accurate.

Lemote is suppose to becoming out with a MIPS based cpu called 3 which should really run some nice specs.

Honestly a company like Canonical should be behind a company like Lemote that is trying to advance open-source in the way of the hardware, drivers and bios.

Lemote could be a positive change for the future of Linux, because American companies like Dell, HP, etc., certainly aren't.

Can anybody tell me where I could purchase a Lemote computer?

I've looked through their entire site and I must have missed it somewhere.

The link's dead. I can't find any info on how to buy this thing. I do notice a ton of cheap arm-based smartbooks for sale on ebay. Next-best thing?

Hello -

Found some more Yeeloong Notebook models here

Does anyone have any experience with these machines they would be willing to share? TIA.

I think he just runs from the command line. 800MHz is a lot of CPU power if you just run in text mode.

They want five hundred dollars for a system that retails for less than two hundred dollars. I'd look elsewhere, for a more reasonable price.

LXDE runs perfect on this configuration, it is more then enough.
