Alpha 400 MIPS 400MHz 128MB 1GB 7″ Linux Ultralite Notebook

Filed under

Hardware

There’s a new little netbook or ultralite notebook floating around out there, a few sites have mentioned it already with mixed reactions, and a few of them made fun of it like a bully might to a child on the playground, and this without ever physically seeing the thing. Anyway, this new little netbook is linux based, it’s small, portable, inexpensive and lightweight, sure it’s not going to run Crysis, but if you’re looking for something to play around with then this just might fit the bill.

Though this one might be considered ultralite or even a netbook and by now I’m sure you’ve heard a bit about it. It’s called the Alpha 400 MIPS 400MHz 128MB 1GB 7" Linux Ultralite Notebook and as you can see by the 400Mhz in the name, it’s not very powerful, so don’t expect to be gaming on it, but I’ve spent three weeks with it now and it’s really not that bad, especially if you consider the price. The Alpha 400 is nice little netbook that is actually fun to play with for basic surfing the internet and it can do productive things as well like word processing, charts, graphs, daily planning and even chatting and watching movies or listening to music.

For what it is it’s not a bad little product
