Hardware, Embedded Systems Few hardware vendors have not yet launched their own mini laptop (or, "netbook"). Most brands these days produce their own version of the same hardware, with Intel's i386-compatible Atom cpu's and Windows XP installed on a spinning hard drive or sometimes still a solid state disk. Some Linux models are still sold by some vendors, among whom Asus, which more or less started selling in this OLPC-inspired genre of laptops.

Looking neat, however, it appears that the cost will be around $800 including shipping to New Zealand.


There is also a Loongson based Nettop that sells for 263 USD.

(1,800 Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY) = 263.354 US Dollar)

I think you just want a MIPS processor machine, simply getting the Nettop instead of the Netbook can save you some $$.
