Hardware, Embedded Systems Go on, go around these gadget sites and read all that talk about netbooks and what not. Acer Aspire One this, MSI that, Dell Mini 9 this, Asus that. It feels like the second coming of laptops in this netbook revolution. But truth is, even back in 1999 you could find super-lightweight laptops in the market (for the right price). This 2005-released IBM Thinkpad X41 laptop that sent us, a well-known shop for computer parts, is one of the best Linux-compatible laptops you can buy today for cheap.

Geeks sells it as a X41, so I don't know if it's really the X41 or the X40. Although I believe that they are two separate versions under the same name. The laptop I received had no touchscreen abilities out of the box.

I actually now think you are right. I did find a non-tablet X41 on Ebay also so maybe wikipedia's article is wrong.

Anyway, you just made me impulse buy the tablet version. Thanks a lot Eugenia!
