I kinda like their opening statement on the "About us" page: Open source, reduce DigitalDivide, provide e-learning tools...
I borrowed an Alpha 400 T62b from Gold Star Computer today, it's a MIPS based tiny, tiny computing platform. Here is my AlphaMIPS Review
Actually it's the same as Trendtac 700 EPC, Elonex One T, Linux Netbook, Maplin Minibook, Silverstar, Yinlips Micro PC, Sub Notebook, 3k Razorbook, Bestlink Alpha 400, HiVision Mininote, JAY-tech Jee-PC 400S, Letux 400 Linux Minibook, CnMBook, CnM Minibook, Novatech Minibook.
And maybe others.
