Mini-Notebook Mania, Part 1

,----[ Quote ]
| Acer Aspire One: Acer's entry into the mini-notebook market has one of the
| most comfortable keyboards for touch typing in this product class, says our
| reviewer, Darren Gladstone, who gave it a PCW Rating of 80 (Very Good). I'd
| agree, based on some limited hands-on experience I've had with the Aspire
| One. The 8.9-inch screen mini-notebook comes in three colors, and runs on
| either Linux or Windows XP.

| Most laptops are sold without the price of Microsoft Windows displayed before

| software on your laptop, such another version of Microsoft Windows, or Linux,
| FreeBSD, OpenBSD or OpenSolaris. In an answer given by Commissioner Kuneva to
| Belgian MEP Saïd El Khadraoui (PSE), there is a mention of two decisions
