"There were already two computers in our kitchen but that wasn't
enough for Fallon, age three, who needs his daily fix of YouTube
Scooby-Doo clips. So for Christmas Fallon (who refers to himself as
"the small boy") got a Dell Vostro A90 netbook running Ubuntu
Linux. That's the business version of a Dell Mini9 with a black
case and Bluetooth installed. Fallon would probably have preferred
the more colorful Mini9 but he got the Vostro, instead, because I
was able to buy a new one from Dell for $199 with free shipping.
Heck of a deal."
