Hi everyone,I am after a very small linux/debian pc. I want something like a laptop with a keyboard & screen but of really small size. (Maybe PDA size) Anyone know if one of these is available? thanks
I'd like to suggest the Archos PMA4XX. I have an "original" and am quite pleased with it.
One "minor" problem: I can't find it on the Archos site any more, so it may be discontinued. In any case, some details follow.
Bob Linux/Qtopia based system: Arm CPU, 80 MHz 64MB RAM 30GB hard disk USB 2.0 connection to host, as VFAT hard disk USB 1.0 peripheral connection - USB/Ethernet, USB keyboard, USB CF card reader wireless networking - not very strong, and for my system, only WEP encryption (so I don't use the wireless ;( Video/Audio recording/playback, with "cradle" which has IR control to connect to recorder (VCR, ??) allowing auto recording of TV programming Full set of PDA utilities - contacts list, calendar, ... Email, web browser (Opera) other apps available from The Kompany.com such as FTP clientSome of the above mentioned software may be part of the Qtopia environment and so would be common to any Qtopia based system.
Also, KDE PIM has a sync feature that is supposed to allow connecting with Qtopia apps (but I haven't yet figured out exactly how it works).
Archos sells a number of peripherals for this device: the USB/Ethernet adapter, keyboard, CF card reader are all extras.
