It doesn't always pay to be quick off the mark. I have been studying the specs of netbooks for 9 months but could not make my mind up which one to buy.

Unfortunately the cheap Linux netbook seemed to have been hijacked. Instead of a low spec Linux machine with solid-state drive most netbooks on sale now have hard-drives, come with XP and are priced as lowend laptops. PCWorld in Coventry last month had 21 different netbooks on sale; 19 of them were Windows XP machines with hard drives.

The new ARM systems look to be very interesting. Glad I kept my powder dry.
