Let's Make Robots!

Ultra Portable Laptops

Anyone any experience of these? Can they be readily programmed? They look like a brilliant little interface to a mid-sized robot (USB, WiFi, battery-powered, etc...) With refurbished prices of around $100, it's be well worth considering.

...but they need to be programmable...

if you're talking about Asus EEE and similar, they're complete PC, and so just as programmable as any other pc. They're indeed a very good choice for medium sized robot. You have all the pc goodies in there: wireless, webcam, tcp/ip, cpu power, etc etc.

Even xkcd think so :)

How the hell do you build an XP installation into a 4Gb drive?

Edit: Yes. I just discovered nLite.
