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.

I should add that my Mom uses my old computer (my old eMac) with a 1GHz processor and 1 GB RAM. It is sufficient for everything she uses, including over 10000 photos she has on it. Most current netbooks would be atleast as fast.

Of course that old computer has an excellent 17" screen, and a really good keyboard, both of which will not be matched by any cheap netbook.
