Hardware, Embedded Systems Chip company ARM is prepping to make its move into the netbook market, and now it has shown off a few prototype designs that really show off the benefits of using the ARM platform: thanks to passive cooling, no fans are required, enabling ARM netbooks to be much thinner and lighter than their Intel counterparts. Thanks to ZDNet, we have a nice video overview of these ARM netbooks - as well as a few very tiny ARM desktop machines.

Price point?

I've been severely disappointed with the pricing of most netbooks. They haven't been significantly discounted from low end notebooks. I'm hoping that arm based netbooks will be cheaper as well. Something around US $200 would be great.
