Laptops got you down, bucko? Portable PCs too much buck for the bang? How about a PC that can dangle off the end of an Ethernet plug and leave you enough money in your pocket to buy a router, hub, and a year’s subscription of DSL high-speed service?

I present to you the picotux 100. Brought to you by the Munich-based Kleinhenz Elektronik GmbH and priced around $125 (dependent upon Euros-to-dollars exchange rate), the picotux 100 is based on 32-bit ARM 7 technology. Best of all, it’s a Linux system featuring uClinux 2.4.27 and Busybox 1.0.

If you build a project featuring the picotux 100 or have experience using this pint-sized PC, please let us know below in the comments.
