I own 2 of these now. It comes with a water proof keyboard and is a toughbook type netbook also. My other one I installed a 64gig SSD drive and run AntiX on it. I only needed to bump up the ram on this unit to 2gig to get a good running low cost netbook going.



That quote is from the page. I really don't know if they ship to the EU. It might be B.S. for all I know. I might just get me another one if I sell something today.>>>>>Editone.
It looks nice, sounds ideal to install Linux Debian on it? Is Linux installation difficult or you have to play around with bios/flashing/...? It is much cheaper than a Zaurus and small though

2 problems.

1- Wont ship to Europe as far as I can tell. Seem to be US only.
2- Even if it does ship to Europe, with shipping from the US, it could end up costing twice as much.

You might find something similar on a Eurpoean site though.

Maybe I'm making some mistaske, but clicking 'See details' gave me a 'Change country' dropdown menu....with only the choice avaible being US. :S

Install was painless and Easy. Boot from USB was in the bios. Also boots from SD slot. These netbooks originally had the option of having Linux instead of Windows come on them.

I was not sure about shipping though and cascade is right. Maybe something like those are floating around in the EU. have already bought my 2nd one as I am a happy camper with these running Gnu/Linux. No lags on Youtube or playibg movies or streaming music or podcasts with these units. The power brick I can find for $7.00 because it is the same ac adapter as what a Lenovo IdeaPad S9 S9e S10 S10e S12 or Advent 4211 4212 4213 4214 4480 4489 uses. ZIF IDE 1.8" Hard Drives (I put a 64gig Kingston in one of mine) work right out of the box.

These units are as hard to find as hens teeth though and were made in the USA Netbooks. The only way I know to call the bluff on shipping is contact the seller with a email and ask. Edit: I did talk to them on the phone when I bought my first one and they are a large company from what I can tell.

I could well be wrong, and maybe if I as in a different country I'd have got different opitions.

I could also be wrong on the cost of shipping from the US..but every time I've shipped something from the US to here I've paid a lot in postage. Far more than I would from europe (I've got a 10KG package from germany that cost less to ship than 2 pairs of shoes from the US).

I'm sure if Xeratul poked around on ebay france or similar sites, they would find a decent intel atom or amd fusion netobook for a similar cost, maybe a bit more.
