Yeah and I belive the PS3 has been seen in the wild booting Linux as well....

Not sure how good it works on the hardware, I guess linux would need a lot of tweeking to make use of any of the cut down extra processing units in the CPU...

I would be happy keeping with arm esspecially if we got the OS available on a laptop like device.... As has been said the Netbook pro is an option... There were also a load of other devices. I think Jornada 820 (& the 720 would be a good mini laptop), Nec Mobilepro (the 900 is a 400Mhz cpu version and has amoung other features a VGA out port), Compaq did a CE laptop I think running Arm and as has been said there are plenty of boxes shipped that run an ARM cpu that are tablet devices. Tablets tend to have a PS2 port and I have seen a lot with a light case that held a keyboard effectively making it a laptop like machine. Maybe not many desktop motherboards with PCI expansion but we have the A9, Ionix and it appears from the other article castle is looking at making an Ionix replacement.
