In case you haven't seen it, 400 mhz mips w/128mb ram ain't half bad IMHO. It will be released next month, but the reason I mention is because a new Zinc version released just for this platform will make certain korean folks know what they are missing. This is just a random thought, since video specifications of this laptop have not been released and the quality of the linux drivers is anybodies guess.

It's cute, but I'd rather have a Pandora if it ever ships :-)

Of course you could make the next Zinc for Vista 64 bit only with support for Soul Calibur and then see if people would buy an OS to play the game for free!*

A gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous kindly decided to borrow some of my Dreamcast GD-ROMs for preservation. I'll be getting dumps, one of the GD-ROMs is Soul Calibur. I'm hoping I'll have the DVDs before my surgery, but if not, I'll have something nice waiting for me when I get home.

Soul Calibur, playable on my PC. I'm so psyched!

And legal as it will be a dump from my legal GDROM.

*I'm making a joke not a request for a new Zinc nor Soul Calibur.

It is almost four years later, but now we are talking about a $25 dollars 700mhz computer w/256mb RAM and OpenGL ES2.0 capabilities, any chance of giving it some zinc love? laugh

ZiNc is very x86-hardcoded - that's why there was never even a 64-bit version. ARM's pretty much entirely out of the question.
