Jolibook goes on sale in the UK for £279

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

It’s here! The Jolibook netbook from Jolicloud is available to purchase in the UK via Amazon and manufactuer Vye’s own online shop.

Priced a not-that-competitive £279 the dual-core Atom netbook packs in a 250GB hard-drive, Intel GMA graphics, 1GB of RAM and a 10.1″ screen. The battery claims to be good for 7 hours and capable of HD playback. The netbook does, of course, run Jolicloud’s own OS.

It’s a good netbook at a good price – although the similarly specc’d Acer Aspire One D255 claims 8 hour battery life, comes with Windows 7 Starter and is £20 cheaper @ £252.

That said £20 isn’t much to pay to support what is arguably the first true Linux netbook available for the masses.

Nab the Jolibook on or via Vye themselves @
