Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based LinuxCertified.com sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

Too big, all too big. I don't need a full size screen, that's what my desktop is for. I love the format of the Picturebook, now, it makes so much sense, and it's amazingly more convenient than a standard laptop - you'd be surprised how much easier it is to carry a Picturebook around than even a very small 'square' notebook.

I've pretty much decided on my next model, actually - if I get the money, it'll be a Flybook: http://www.flybook.com/ . It's the same form factor as the Picturebook, with a 1GHz Crusoe CPU, stacks of memory, bluetooth, wi-fi *and* GPRS all built in. I think all three should work with Linux, too. Squee. Either that, or a Fujitsu Lifebook P series, which is the same form factor again.
