Despite not knowing the processor, and the small res screen, I think this is a good alternative to the 7" Eee.

Voted hot!

It's the processor that might be the sore point of this system. The same laptop has turned up in quite a few outlets today, none listing the CPU as anything but generic 32bit. This is a bad thing - that it's not shouting about having an Intel, AMD or Via chip might well mean that its CPU isn't x86 compatible. No x86 compatability means that you're not going to be able to run much software on it, only the stuff that comes with and is specially compiled for the CPU. So, no Windows, and maybe no Open Office or any other Linux dist .

One to avoid until more facts come out about it, I think.

For anyone interested you can ask on the CCL forums what the CPU is.

The same one sold by Maplin, Scan and a few others.
More expensive than it's worth, IMO.
An interesting discussion on it can be read on

WIth a generic processor and only 128mb of RAM, this would probably struggle to run XP anyway!
#6
same one Maplin & Novatech are doing. Cheaper from Maplin if you use their monthly discount vouchers
#7
The CPU is unlikely to be X86 compatible so dont expect to be able to download any of your favourite Linux software.
If so nothing will install on it apart from stuff at the manufacturers website.

Very bad buy considering the massively better EEE PC is now £160.

OK if it was £100

Better off getting the Elonex oneT for this money: http://www.elonexone.co.uk/onet.html
