Hands-on with a prototype Intel MID

Arstechnica has the Intel MID  for a few hours and this is what they say:

A sticker on the back indicated that this particular device would likely be capable of running Windows, but it doesn't seem to have the power required for all the bells and whistles of Windows Vista. Fortunately for Mandriva, this machine has all the power it needs to run Linux, including graphics, videos, and even servers if one were so inclined. 

The Intel MID prototype is a solid device with a few early flaws that should be resolved. Helio said that the devices derived from this prototype will likely be hitting market sometime next year, complete with a faster processor, flash memory, a card reader, and hopefully a stylus or a screen with less of a lip at the edges.  

Another one that finds that a A110 processor is not powerful enough for running any version of Windows. Thanks God that the devices derived from this prototype will likely be hitting market sometime next year, complete with a faster processor. I seems to me that Intel got my message!Thumbs-up
