The system is equiped with a 900 Mhz ultra low power Intel CPU, a 7'' LCD monitor, 512 MBytes of RAM and uses flash memory as permanent storage. On the software side, the system comes with a custom version of Xandros Linux preinstalled."

Haiku is so going on one of these!

Haiku should boot in 8-10 seconds on this puppy. I may have to get one (if I can, I bet these will sell like Wiis, aka hotcakes.) The current 80 MB "distro size" of Haiku would leave plenty of room for other stuff. Of course Haiku still has some work before it is usable day to day.

But I can't believe Xandros was taking up 2.7 GB! I'm sure they could slim that down. You'd think they would use one of the slimmer distros. Oh well.

It definitely should make a nice ultra portable system for when you are out and about.
