It ads 3x hard drive space and 2x RAM for nearly the same price. If you want that Nvidia ION thing it will cost you $100 extra, cause that's what Intel, Nvidia and Microsoft charges extra for that HDMI output which is not part of the low cost Intel Atom and Windows XP licencing limitations and cause Nvidia charges extra for their chip.robtek70 wrote:If the Ubuntu version of the Archos 10 (a rebadged Hasee MJ125) is the same hardware as the Windows version but with a larger hd and Linux then it is still an average performing netbook. To improve on it to any degree you would need, as mention above, to include the NVidia ION graphic chip set plus HDMI and optical out. Now if the Archos 9 included these items then I would definitely consider purchasing one.Charbax wrote:Archos makes the worlds best Netbooks if that's what you want. The Archos 10 Ubuntu comes with 500GB hard drive, 2GB ram, 6-cell battery for just about as much as a normal netbook ($375). You can then install a triple-boot system on it with Windows XP/7 and Hackintosh OSX as well. It could come in the Archos 10S thin form factor design as well.accurian wrote:Lenovo IdeaPad S12
You'll get HDMI output on the ARM based $150 Laptops coming out in the next few months. Those ARM laptops will also get decent 3D acceleration based on Open GL graphics which will play any Quake3 type of game at full resolution and full framerates.
