On the U.S. site you used to be able to buy a S10 with SLED on it and a
memory drive. *Looks there now* I couldn't find one this time around..
seem to say XP. They have a couple of new models (S12) including one that
has a VIA Nano ULV 2250 - 1.30 GHz 800Mhz 1MB) and VIA integrated graphics
- Chrome 9 HC3. This is the first I've heard of this processor. Does
how it compares to the Intel ATOM? The S12 is a 12" model too with a 6 cell
battery and full keyboard - according to the IBM site.
