[Discuss] Litebook - cheap Linux laptop

> hardware - quad core Atom Celeron...high end

Ok, that's still a little less $ than a Refurb Lenova T420/430
(business outtakes, $300-350; of the last gen done to IBM drawings
post-split), but is it enough less to be compelling? This one is a lot
lighter and with a really thin unconvincing keyboard, all of which may
be a feature for some uses.  I'll bet the T420 has more horsepower and
has more upgrade possible, but if tablet with keyboard is goal for a
netbook light / faux chromebook, good that there are Linux native
