About nine months ago, I asked about small notebooks/netbooks, hoping to buy one, after being inspired to want one by the OpenPandora. I ended up buying myself an Acer Aspire One netbook (first generation, with a disk pack, not an SSD), and later got a NanoNote... and eventually I actually ordered the Pandora.
However, it looks like the Pandora isn't going to ship for a long time (I ordered in May, it hasn't been made yet), so I want to prepare for the worst and start eyeing up similarly sized machines.
So, what are the smallest netbooks you can buy? I'm looking for something I can install an OS of my own choice onto, and can fit in my jacket pocket (so, maybe a little bigger than a DS). Performance isn't an issue, 64M of RAM and a 2GB NAND wouldn't be a problem, as long as I can expand the storage using some sort of card (SD, PCMCIA, CF, &c).
Whether or not I buy it isn't written in stone; I'll only be ordering it if May comes round again and my Pandora doesn't come and I end up canceling.
Does such a device exist?
Note: OpenPandora is a community as well, and they have let everyone know why the machines haven't been built yet; the sum of it is that they've been treated really badly by hardware manufacturers overseas, and will probably take until February to recover and start production again. If you want more information, it'll be on the website.
... and the ones that won't
