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.

Too expensive

It seems like an interesting machine, but I think it is rather expensive, considering that with that pricetag I can get a normal Atom-powered notebook (with windows, unfortunately).

So, as a gimmick, it's ok, but I can't give it more than that.

it isn't a gimmick, it's a niche product.
