|Lenovo ThinkPad 11, 11.6 inch, 1500 grams (3.31 lbs)|
|Acer Aspire One D257 Meego, 10.1 inch, 1300 grams (2.87 lbs)|
At 222 Euros for a top-end netbook platform, this Meego edition saves around 60 Euros over the Windows Home 7 Starter version, a differential that's larger than the cost of the Windows 7 Starter License. 2GB of RAM is also included (the WIndows 7 version comes with only 1GB) which hints that this device may be either subsidised or a loss-leader for Acer. It's unclear if any application store is included or whether Acer will be providing updates as Meego progresses. Battery life is expected to be as good as the Windows version which users are reporting to have 7hrs of life.
|Samsung N100 (MeeGo), 10.1 inch, 1030 grams (2.27 lbs)|
The N100 is hitting a very low price point at launch which means street prices could be even less. The 3-cell battery looks to be good quality (40Wh is good, but not confirmed by Samsung at this stage.) A matt screen and the usual array of netbook connections for USB devices, SDHC cards, wired networking, screen and audio will put the device in a far more flexible position than devices running a mobile operating system. For the price, this is looking like a real bargain.
