Samsung Q1 Ultra

Introduction

The Samsung Q1 Ultra is a pretty good UMPC for Linux. Not the best or the fastest, but perfect for a lightweight (Tablet oriented?) distro. Bodhi Linux works wonders with the Tablet configuration.

Summary

This is a fine device for running Linux, especially lightweight distros. The less-than-lightweight distros still work, but not perfectly. Expect a graphical error here and there, and a moderately slow experience, due to the poor choice of processor. (Intel Atom. Jeez, what were they thinking?!)
