Virtualization, Cloud, Infrastructure and all that stuff in-between

My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Tiny Laptop for £229 with solid state HDD

 

I generally wouldn’t touch anything other than a Dell/HP/IBM laptop with a bargepole for reasons of spares availability/cost… but at £229 inc VAT this is almost disposable if something dies.

It’s tiny and has a (small) solid state HDD but SD card reader slot to allow you to add more storage space.

No Bluetooth but has a £40 option for adding an integrated 3G modem very cool.

I had a P133 Toshiba Libretto years ago and it was ace.. I like the idea of this..

Linux OS only at the moment (+VMWare maybe?) but WinXP in near future

And a bit of an update to this post Bryce posted a great link to a site covering upgrades to this mini notebook – 2Gb RAM upgrade, how to install other software & WinXP. Must, resist… must… http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=4062
