[Vendor: LINUTOP]

Linutop says its "Linutop" computer fits the bill for everyday Internet usage in libraries, schools and universities, business and government offices, hotels, hospitals, Internet cafes, and living rooms. The petite box is also touted as a developer-friendly platform that can be easily adapted to other uses, such as public information displays, point-of-sale terminal, embedded PC (car, boat, plane).

The Linutop PC is based on a Geode LX 700@0.8W processor, a 433MHz version of AMD's LX-800. The chip has a TDP (thermal design power) of 3.1 Watts, according to AMD.

The Linutop has 256MB of RAM, and 512MB of flash-based storage. I/O includes 10/100 Ethernet and VGA, along with four USB 2.0 ports and audio I/O. Wireless Ethernet will also be an option, possibly through a USB peripheral.

The Linutop measures 3.7 x 1.1 x 5.9 inches (9.3 x 2.7 x 15 cm), and weighs 9.9 ounces (280 grams).

The Linutop PC will be supplied with a 2.6.18 Linux kernel and Debian-based filesystem that includes a number of popular open source applications, including:

* Firefox web browser
* AbiWord word processor
* Evince PDF viewer
* Gaim instant messenger
* Totem media player

Additionally, an impending upgrade to 2.6.19 is expected to bring "even better support for those Zydax-based WiFi dongles that everyone has," said Martin-Eric Racine, Linutop's software specialist.

The stack also includes an XDMCP client, enabling it to work with LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) installations, Racine notes. It also supports Etherboot, with PXE a possibility given sufficient demand.
