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.

What about flash and skype? I hate to pull out two binary blobs as reasons not to support such a cool device but my reality is that I use both of these every day. Also, are all the same codecs going to work? win32 codecs, etc? NDIS wrapper? Do these things integrate bluetooth and webcams?
