Another Eee-killer
 
Even cheaper than an Eee 701
<http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/05/23/china_cheap_eee_clone/>. Googling
for "XBurst" turned up this page:
<http://www.ingenic.cn/eng/productServ/App/JZ4740/pfCustomPage.aspx>. Turns
out it's a non-x86-compatible processor, so Windows is out of the
question--your only option for a proper desktop OS is Linux.

I was expecting something like this to turn up eventually
<http://groups.google.co.nz/group/nz.comp/msg/44ad777eefc1a762>, the only
surprise is that it's happened so soon...

Secondly

The micro processer and the CPU are morphing, line area between them is
getting very fuzzy.
