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.

Interesting you include Silverlight in there. Maybe it's just the corners of the web I typically frequent, but I've not encountered a single site yet that requires Silverlight to play its content.


It's getting used more and more, and from what I've seen so far, its performance is much better than crappy Flash, and it doesn't weigh as heavy on the resources either.
