Re: OT: advice on Notebook, smartbook from alwaysinnovating
I don't have one, but it is one of my top choices for a netbook. I remember when they came out. There was a guy on the talk.maemo.org forums that got one, and he said it was a good machine.
The earlier version had some construction issues, they kinda felt cheesy, but I assume they worked these bugs out. And the processor was a little anemic, (400MHz ARM, same as in my N810), but they have come out with a new version (SmartBook) has a Cortex A8, which is the same chip as the N900 will do at a minimum, 600MHz, and can be overclocked (the record on the N900 is apparently 1.7GHz).
Not sure what distro it runs (Meego?), but the guy that got the TouchBook running Maemo, which is based on Debian.

I am planning to buy a notebook, laptop or tablet for my daughter who is at
university. So the main use will be internet research, and writing of her
theses (in litterature, so no big.deal as far as sketches, drawings...). The
contract from alwaysinnovating, respecting the gpl even on the material just
please me. But if any of you has try it, can you give some feed back, at least
on the notebook, as I would get the smartbook which is not produced yet. But
if their first product was up to what they claim it is, I would like to give
them a chance for the next baby. Thank you
