Default Cheap Netbook

A quick search for the cheapest on Ebay reveals a $99 7 inch netbook.

300mhz ARM and 128mb RAM. Windows CE
I bet you can't even go on Facebook with this.

If you had one, what would you do with it?

Nice one, Yami. I would sell it for more, as you normally have to pay shipping.

There are cheaper laptops online. A.K.A. AS-IS

300mhz ARM cpu =beyond slow. They don't specify the core type either so it's likely a ARM11.

For reference the HTC Nexus 1/Incredible\HD2/Supersonic smartphones have 1ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core ARM processors which are significatly faster clock for clock than an ARM11.

I would sell it as well. doesn't seem worth anything... specially since you could probably find a better one for not much more

I kind of wonder if Danm Small Linux would fit.
