Lenovo S10-3t multi touch netbook

Hi All,

 So I just received the Lenovo S10-3t, I'm just working with it in Windows 7 mode so far.

 Hopefully I'll get time this week to get OpenSolaris B134 loaded at least from USB stick.

10" Multi Touch Netbook

Hi All,

 So I received the 10" Multi Touch Touchscreen netbook from China, I got it from here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280469378896&ssPageName=STRK:null:IT

It looks really great, I've got Windows 7, OpenSolaris B133 and Ubuntu 9.10.

Everything looks like it's working, though OpenSolaris and Ubuntu do not see the Realtek WiFi card, it's OK, I've got an 802.11n Atheros Mini PCI card coming in.

I'm using easyBCD to modify the boot manager in Windows 7, I can select Windows 7, OpenSolaris or Ubuntu.

 More later.

BenQ S6 MID and 10 " Multi Touch

Hi All,

 So I've been having some fun this week with a BenQ S6 4.8" MID, it's kind of cute, it's running Windows XP, I'll keep this one here until I get the 3G mini PCI-E modem installed, then I'm going to try a couple of Linux versions and off course OpenSolaris.

Not sure how OS will deal with the touchscreen, I already know how to build the onscreen keyboard for X.

Next week I hope to take delivery of a 10" multi touch touchscreen netbook, direct from manufacturer in China.

If it looks like it really is as advertised I'll let you guys know where I got it. Getting multi touch working on Xorg should be a interesting project, plus the touchscreen mouse and onscreen keyboard.

It's got a 300Gb HD, so I should be able to get Windows 7, Ubuntu and OpenSolaris installed without any problems.

Have a great weekend

Dave
