Rumors have surfaced on a Japanese blog that a Toshiba netbook (Satellite NB100) will come pre-installed with Ubuntu Eee. If this is true, than this is a huge day for Ubuntu Eee.
The minuscule laptop — dubbed the NB100 — will feature an 8.9-inch, 1024 x 600 display, a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive and WiFi. The NB100 will be offered in three colors, Cosmic Black, Champagne Gold, and Bright Silver, thus making its casing the only difference between this and every other middling, mediocre netbook on the market. Prices are set to start at £260 (or about $472), and the laptops will be on shelves this October.
