I don't care if they know or care, I just know that *I* want to know.
Btw, interesting quote from Seybold:
""We buy access inventory and package it up; that's why we are able to offer such a low price," Seybold said. "In other words, we use XBurst and similar inexpensive processors in order to stay below the $100 mark, we reserve the right to make changes on the fly, that's why we didn't go into great detail on our site. There are a number of customers who will get a much more powerful system than advertised. Yes we take orders and we started shipping last week. Naturally our margin on the "Africa" is very thin but we are not losing money either.""http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2357185,00.asp
> it can only be obvious that they are just reselling an existing ultra-cheap notebook
Yes, of course that's obvious. But it's not obvious (to me at least) whether it has the "LittleLinuxLaptop" board or if it's a different XBurst based design.
> Don't you realize that thinking otherwise would be so much more complicated?
I don't think otherwise and never said or implicated so.
