Tiny Zpools of Goodness

Dell has released the Inspiron Mini 9, a teeny tiny, itsy bitsy, sub-notebook computer running on the Intel Atom platform. The tiny computers are available with 4, 8, or 16 GB SSD drives. Screen res 1024x 600 and it weighs in 2+ Lbs.

Preloaded with Ubuntu Linux $349

Upgrade to Windows Xp ( Hey that's on the Dell site, don't fucking yell at me...) $399.

Libretto 2008? Sure you betcha! Who amongst you will be the first brave soul to run Solaris or OpenSolaris on the aforementioned mighty mites? Who amongst you will birth tiny zpools onto the world? Perhaps someone will hack another SSD into the miniscule case and run a veritable orgy of ZFS filesystems? Perhaps someone, some brave pathfinder, will find a way to run Windows Me, or even NT Workstation 4.0?  The mind reels!

Apple MacBooks  because this is what you want... i'm seriously..
