Mini-Review: 3K RazorBook 400 Mini-Notebook

,----[ Quote ]
| The unit containing a 4GB SSD, 512MB of memory, and an odd flavor of Linux is
| available from 3K Computers right now for $399. While the system is better
| than expected, is it better than the similarly priced Eee PC 4G with Xandros
| Linux? Let’s find out.

| Right off the bat, I was impressed by the glossy black lid on the RazorBook.
| Like with the CTL IL1PC, it gives the system a nice shine but quickly became
| smeared in fingerprints.
