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.

That is right. I think besides x86 compativility, if it could not handle flash and flash movies up to par with windows/mac/linux-on-x86, that would not be for average users anyway so not competitive with that much price. I was thinking that would be really awesome at $300~400 ;)
