I ordered a Lenovo S10 Netbook (Black) directly from the company yesterday. They had the best overall price and I splurged and go the 6 cell battery as well.
I am planning to upgrade the system with a new HD and additional memory as noted HERE.
Total cost to the system is $460.00 including the upgrade. I can buy six of them for what I pay for a single Dell Laptop at work… We will see if the value is there.
I wan to be able to dual boot the system between Ubuntu and XP Pro in order to make it a demo system for Open Source code at work. I am also hoping that the size and portability will allow me to drag the laptop from meeting to meeting and take notes at work.
I normally work with a 15″ Mac Intel Powerbook running OSX and VMWare Fusion for my work apps ( We are a Windows shop at the County…)
Anyway, that’s the plan and I will report back on what I find with the upgrade, install and operation!
