THIS ONE JUST POPPED up in the INQ mailbox and we thought you'd like to know about it... even though we don't know much about it ourselves.
It's a cheap as chips netbook running an unspecified flavour of Linux and you can get it for a penny shy of £170 including delivery (the price goes up to £220 in a couple of months).
It's being flogged as the CNM Minibook but we have no idea who makes it.
We'd like to say that can't be bad... but we're sure it probably can. Let us know if you've got your grubby mits on one and we'll share your experiences with the world.
And, as usual, if you know more about it than we do, put us right in the comments section below.
