Silent Linux PC makes browsing plug'n'play

I'd seen photos of the Linutop diskless, silent computer before, but I hadn't quite realised how small it was until seeing the image below; unless that's a specially-constructed Giant Wallwart Of Death, the fanless PC is deliciously dinky.  Based on a very low-power AMD Geode LX700 and external flash storage, it runs a customised version of xubuntu specifically tailored for things like internet browsing, blogging, word processing and IM.


The great news is that the Linutop is now shipping, priced at around £230 including tax and EU shipping ($444).  With a current draw of only 6W and that compact size, I can think of plenty of uses either around the home or office, or in the car.
