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.

win32 codecs, etc?


Possibly, but not without a lot of effort. Certainly it wouldn't be good idea to run codecs under processor emulator (or binary translator like QEMU).

NDIS wrapper?


Nope. There's no point in using it though when the devices are built to run Linux and so the hardware is chosen appropriately.

Do these things integrate bluetooth and webcams?


Yes for webcams, bluetooth probably too.
