The Ben NanoNote – The World’s Smallest Linux Laptop?

Filed under

Gadgets

Measuring at less than 100mm wide and 17mm thick with a dinky 3″ screen, the Ben NanoNote might just be the world’s smallest Linux laptop for the traditional definition of the word.

While pulling this out in public might get you a few odd looks, the Ben NanoNote actually runs a relatively feature rich piece of software called OpenWRT. It also happens to boast entirely open hardware and software, which not only makes it crazy small, but also Stallman-approved.

You might be fooled into thinking that Reducto from Harvey Birdman had gotten his hands (and shrink gun) on an old ThinkPad and made it fun size, but in fact this laptop is actually available to buy at $99.00 plus a small (literally) amount of shipping.
