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.

A4 rises from the Ashes?

I wonder how many remember the first ARM-based 'netbook' - The A4 laptop made by Acorn?

So named as it was the size of a A4 sheet (if not the thickness!).

I do as I still own one of the prototypes - S/N 004 IIRC.

Anyone who wants it - get in touch. :-)
