Windows 7: Mini laptops

20 Jan 2010   #21

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

Not sure what is available on the far side of the pond but something like this may be of use for this type of use

Exchange rates would put the low end prices I've seen around the $200 mark, but as it includes cell phone type access as well as Wi-Fi that could be a major pricing factor in the US
