"A slew of notebooks that incorporate Transmeta's Crusoe processor will hit the United States over the next two months, including one that includes both a Windows operating system and a version of Linux."

"This spring, Casio will release its Crusoe-based Fiva notebook in the United States, according to the company. Among other features, the Fiva runs on Windows 2000 but also comes with version of Linux that lets consumers skirt the Windows boot-up when it comes to certain applications."

"NEC, meanwhile, will come out with a budget-priced Crusoe notebook and a fancier version containing space-saving lithium-polymer batteries, according to sources close to the company. Others manufacturers are also expected to begin releasing Transmeta notebooks in North America, sources said."
