Jolibook hits Amazon today in UK for pre-order

Jolibook netbook may not ship for 3 months

If you are a fan of netbooks that run alternate OS' a new offering is set to hit the UK today on Amazon. The new netbook is called the Jolibook and the thing can be pre-ordered and has a very vague and long estimated ship time. Don't expect to get your hands on this thing in time for Christmas.

According to Amazon UK, the machine will ship 1 to 3 months from today if you pre-order. That is a serious range and enough to make me go looking for another netbook to order. The only thing different about the Jolibook and any other netbook on the market is the OS. Other than the Jolicloud 1.1 OS, the machine is your basic netbook under the skin.

 

The machine has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 display, an Atom N550 CPU, 1GB of DDR3 RAM, a 250GB HDD, and WiFi. The netbook also has Bluetooth, a 0.3MP webcam, and a 6-cell battery promising 7-hours of run time per charge. Apparently, the reason for the large range of ship dates is that the OS is not ready. You can pre-order for 279.99 pounds right now.
