The fift. .. .

There seems to be more in this category since the EEE PC http://eeepc.asus.com and OLP http://www.laptop.org came out. There is suppose to be one from Everex called Cloudbook. http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/umpc/everex-targeting-the-eee-pc-with-the-new-cloudbook-332160.php There is one from Fujitsu.  http://store.shopfujitsu.com/fpc/Ecommerce/productoverview.do?type=TB&pgid=Tablets I have no doubt that there will be more to come.

I think Packard Bell has re-branded the Everex Cloudbook, I saw it somewhere. Im liking the cloudbook better than the EEEpc so far. Liking the VIA processor @ higher clock, liking the RAM, and liking how the speakers arent vertical next to the screen.

I found the site for it. I had to chose UK instead of USA since it was not listed.  :-[

It does not come with a cd drive but it is sold separately. It seems to have bigger keys than the EEE PC. One could install eCS from an external cd(?).

I hope so. I tried an EEEpc here at my school, and as cool as it was, it simply could not be for me. I have monkey hands and I need a bigger keyboard. Both my hands would barely fit side-by-side on they keypad.

I will try to see if I could use an USB keyboard with the EEE PC. I will try USB Geek to see what they and others have.

Here is another small computer; Tiqit.  http://www.tiqit.com/  One could install eCS using an external (USB?) cd or dvd drive?

Here is the Flipstart computer that has been reduced in price by 50%.  8)  If it can run the full version of Win, why not eCS?  ???   8)

Here is another mini-notebook computer - the JVC 741(second link above) - that has a site where someone has installed eCS onto it (first link above).

I found this at the 'other operating systems' section at http://fourm.eeeuser.com

“I’ve been on the lookout for an ultra portable PC that would allow me to travel light for long periods of time without plugging in and purchased a Fujitsu U810 a couple of weeks ago.”

Here is another mini-notebook computer from HP.  8)
