sweet looking laptop


From the site:

At just 2.9 lbs, the $799 Lindows Mobile PC is a featherweight, but it
weighs in with such features as LindowsOS, a 933mhz VIA processor,
256MB RAM, USB 2.0, Firewire, Ethernet, and a crisp 12.1″ TFT display,
plus a PCMCIA slot to add even more functionality such as wireless
networking. No other computer is as ideally suited for carry-around
mobility as the affordable, under 3lb, Lindows Mobile PC. You’ll find
yourself taking it with you everywhere!

If I ever get one of those, you can bet that I’ll install Debian on it
really quickly. But the page makes no mention of battery life, and I’m
not sure if the lower price is due to the lack of Windows tax (but it
can’t be that big!) or the lack of a long battery. It seems too thin
for a major battery…

In contrast, however, my computer is
– Processor: Transmeta Crusoe? TM5800 (733MHz)
– Memory: 256MB SDRAM, max. 256MB (PC133)
– Disk Capacity: 20GB
– Display: 8.9″ Wide TFT Colour (1024 x 600 pixels)
– Storage Device: External PCMCIA CD-ROM
– OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional
– Dimensions: 231(W) x 149.5(D) x 26.5(H) mm
– Weight Approx. 880g

So my computer is around 1.90 lbs, which is _so_ much sleeker than the
subnotebook. Oh well.
