    Talking Request for Affordable 10" Laptop/Netbook for Ubuntu recomendations

    Hi,

    Considering purchasing a 10" Laptop/Netbook for an Ubuntu user.

    Requirements:

    1) ~10" (certainly < the 13/14 sizes)
    2) Must accept existing 2.5" SATA SSD or come with it's own SSD.

    How's the AMD/Atom war these days?
    Can I install Ubuntu on an ARM netbook yet?
    Without hackery?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    J1M.

    AMD stood still, Atom improved. So the current E2-1800 is about the same as the latest Atom cpu in perf.

    GPU-wise, all current Atoms run PowerVR crap, so that alone will make you go AMD.

    Can I install Ubuntu on an ARM netbook yet?

    Yes, and no.
