Brilliant bright display; easy to sync with your desktop computer; good battery life

No built in scroll wheel; lots of dongles; not a very powerful system

Sharp Actius MM20

 

At less then 2 pounds, (well, 1.99 to be exact) and barely half an inch thick, the Sharp Actius MM20 is a remarkably portable notebook. It's also the first we've seen to feature Transmeta's new Efficeon TM8600 processor. Add in a unique cradle...

Great Tiny Laptop

 

I installed Gentoo Linux using a the base station and another Linux box by partititioning and mounting the usb drive and chrooting. Be sure to back up the hard drive just in case you ever want to use Windows again. Alternatively, you could dual boot.

Very small an light-weight

There is no microphone input on the laptop
