Travel With a Tiny RazorBook in Your Pocket

LOS ANGELES -- Don't let Linux scare you. This 3K RazorBook 400 is easy to love. It's a mini notebook with the Linux operating system that will also open Word and Excel docs. It fits in the palm of your hand, zooms in on any hotspot to automatically connect with the Internet and it costs only $299 -- great for you road warriors. Gadget Grrl also shares info on a pricey 24ct gold iPhone as well as free ringtones. There is something for every budget here!

3K RazorBook 400-Mini-Notebook PC

I believe I just might have found the answer to my mobile needs in the 3K RazorBook Mini Notebook PC.

With all the hassles of Vista, I wasn't anxious to pick up one of the new sub-notebooks loaded with it, so a PC with the Linux operating system that will also open Word and Excel docs sounded good.

For starters the size on this one is 8.25 inches in length by 5.5 inches in width by 1.25 inches in depth; and it weighs in at under two pounds. Battery life is about three hours, with continued use, which is long enough to work or watch a movie.

The specs on this include built-in WiFi 802.11 b/g that automatically detects and connects to the Internet at any hotspot, open source Office Suite includes AbiWord/Opens Microsoft® Word Files, GNUMeric/Opens Microsoft® Excel Files, an Email Client, a PDF Reader, three USB connection ports and one Ethernet 10/100 LAN port, 512MB DDR2 Mem and a rapid start-up time of 15 seconds to boot up.

Don't let Linux scare you. There are lots of companies making the switch. You'll see more and more devices in the near future hopping onto the open yet stable, Linux operating system.

Of note here, the company does not sell direct, so once you place your order, a distributor will contact you to finalize your order. And they just dropped the price from $399 to $299, making this even more attractive to road warriors.
