    | The days of the cumbersome, expensive, overweight laptop are ending. There is
    | a huge latent demand for a network appliance like the ASUS machine that just
    | works. And - bang on schedule - last week Hewlett Packard launched an assault
    | on this emergent market with its Mini-Note, which with a bigger screen and
    | keyboard than the ASUS machine but still running Linux and not having a hard
    | disk, retails at just under $500 (£250). But will HP be happy to see it
    | selling in Toys 'R' Us? * * *

    Looks like even Asus has to do the distribution dance to get Linux to
    work...
