    Prices start at $399. XP only. Textured outside finish (no fingerprints). Bluetooth option available.

    HP will offer these in 2 screen sizes: 8.9" and 10.2". They will be offering Linux but it will be a version similar to Linpus Light in that that it will have an icon-based interface that will not allow the (casual) user to access the deeper workings of the operating system.

    Sheesh, just load the damn things with Ubuntu Netbook Remix and be done with it!

    I rather enjoy my Dell Mini 9 with factory installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.
