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 Geeks.com sent us, a well-known shop for computer parts, is one of the best Linux-compatible laptops you can buy today for cheap.

I didn't mean to throw the inches and pounds out. That would be a great disservice to US and British readers! I just meant it would be great to include both, like "2.7 lbs (1.3kg)"

In the UK we are taught Imperial and Metric

Ask 99% of people here what their weight is they will say it in stone and height in feet

99% also quote the temperature in Celsius

I may naturally use it this way round, but I can convert happily in my head if another measurement system is used. I'm sure most (educated?) OSNews readers can do the same
