It is a tiny laptop with a really low pricetag. It is made by a brand I am familiar with (Asus) and it is under $400! Even better, it has a solid state hard drive!! Judging by the description this thing almost crosses the line between PDA and laptop featuring a small (wide) screen size of 800x480, dimensions of 8.86" x 6.30" x 0.79-1.26" and weighing in at 2.0 lbs. Now for the best part of all... It runs Linux!" top

Apparently the hot Xbox was registered with Microsoft with details the police sought to apprehend the thief. According to Microsoft, "The privacy and safety of customer information was a "huge issue" for the company and the details could not be handed out.". Is Microsoft being truly altruistic or is there possibly something else at play here?" top
