Linux-Netbook.com is dedicated to small laptops running Linux based operating systems like Android, Chrome OS, Joli OS, Linux Mint, MeeGo, and Ubuntu. We encourage and support using free and open source software.
Before pulling out of the netbook market in the end of 2011, Dell was one of the few big computer manufacturers that offered netbooks with a pre-installed version of Linux, Ubuntu Netbook Remix to be precise.
This short video, filmed at the Hong Kong Computer & Communications Festival 2011, shows some of the software features the Asus Eee PC X101 running a custom built of MeeGo offers. It supports social networking services like Twitter and Facebook, Adobe Air applications (which is a bit creepy), and more important for the Chinese market all mainstream Chinese input methods.
The ASUS Eee PC X101 is a netbook with a 10.1" screen, powered by a 1.33GHz Intel Atom N435 processor. The X101 was showcased at Computex 2011 a few months ago running MeeGo and is now available with this Linux based mobile operating system pre-installed.
Besides the Asus Eee PC X101 also the Lenovo Ideapad S100 was showcased at the recent Computex running the MeeGo operating system. The long awaited Ideapad S100 model is equipped with a low-cost Intel Atom N435 processor and sports a 10.1" screen.
