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 will be buying one of these machines when they come out in th UK.

It will be interesting to see what they have managed to do with ubuntu and its (or is this a more general *nix problem?) system resources issues (i.e. it needs *lots* <-- OK from what I have seen in the x86 versions...)

So I agree with you there will hopefully be some *serious* optimisations coming
