Do minilaptops exist anymore?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering, do the minilaptops exist anymore? By a "minilaptop" I mean a laptop that is maximum of 10" in size, and still a regular laptop (folds like regular laptops, got a keyboard and a touchpad)? I have an old Asus EEE pc 901, and I was wondering if there's anything like that on the market? the battery on the poor thing is completely dead (battery capacity around 5Wh at full charge, which is enough for about 45 minutes idling on desktop, which is not enough).

And no, I don't want a tablet or anything else ARM based. rolleyes.gif

Too big. the 10" is a strict maximum for my needs. rolleyes.gif My jackets inner pocket can hold barely a 10" laptop/tablet/whatever of the same shape, so preferably something between 8 and 9", but a 10" should work too, if it's not too thick

Well, I would be ready to pay even up to 100 euro for a flawlessly working EEE 901 or equivalent. Even though the CPU was a Intel Atom N270 singlecore with hyperthreading, and didn't have much RAM, it was far more than what I need. I run very lightweight custom Linux installations (the one currently on the EEE 901 uses about 70MB ram at the moment) on my laptops anyway, so they are damn fast even on crappier hardware. For a comparison, the Linux on my EEE 901 boots onto desktop a lot faster than Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 on my main rig with a fast SSD, fast processor, and a lot of ram. rolleyes.gif

There is the ASUS Transformer, which is Intel Atom based (not ARM). But it is basically a tablet with a detachable keyboard, so may not fit your parameters....

The ASUS T100 (detachable keyboard) is also worth considering:
