Check out the HP Mini 1000, this little gadget, (you all know I love gadgets) its HP’s new mobile device, weighing in at only 2.3 lbs its light enough to take anywhere. even as small as it is they keyboard is still 9/10 the size of a standard keyboard.
When it comes to prcessing power it sports a Intel Atom processor ans is available with 1GB of ram (windows version) or 2gigs (Linux version). the Linux version is built on Ubuntu,
I actually have a few Ubuntu boxes myself and rather enjoy the OS, I’ve always been a linux fan but Ubuntu is so easy I think pretty much anyone can pick it up and be using it within a few minutes. If your looking for a new Ultra-portable computing solution, check this little guy out.

Apple has released a new ad which makes reference to PC world article testing Windows Vista laptops. Guess who the winner was. The apple Mac Book Pro. Thats right, on all the Windows Vista powered laptops the fastest machine was a computer built for Mac OSX.
I find it very interesting that the winning machine was built by a company that really doesn’t care whether or not you choose to run Windows on it.
Here is a short quote from the article.
“The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year (through 10/25/07) is a Mac. Try that again: The fastest Windows Vista notebook we’ve tested this year–or for that matter, ever–is a Mac. Not a Dell, not a Toshiba, not even an Alienware. The $2419 (plus the price of a copy of Windows Vista, of course) MacBook Pro’s PC WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 88 beats Gateway’s E-265M by a single point, but the MacBook’s score is far more impressive simply because Apple couldn’t care less whether you run Windows.”
