Agora 12" Ultra Portable Laptop Computer

Kogan have announced an "Agora PRO 12" Ultra Portable Laptop Computer" (which actually has a 11.6) for $389. This looks like a larger screen version of the 10 inch Linux netbook they sold previously (and was mostly good).

I have been using the smaller Kogan Netbook for a year and it has worked well. The power supply failed, but Kogan sent me a new one, no questions asked. The limitation with the Netbook was the small screen and keyboard, which the new model addresses, without making it too big to carry around.
