Yet Another Armed PC

Two in fact. Genesi makes a nettop and a smartbook both with 800MHz FreeScale CPU and Ubuntu 10.10. $129 for the nettop and $199 for the smartbook. That is competitive in price/performance. Too bad it’s not the latest dual core CPU but it is ARM and with 512MB it will work well with Ubuntu and it allows you to install your favourite distro with a customer kernel.

So many gadgets. So little time.
