From experience with machines of similar specs, the Linutop will run much more efficiently with Vector.

On the Linutop, VectorLinux would be twice as fast as Xubuntu.

I guess the question "Yeah, but does it run Linux?" is already answered here.

Sorry, couldn't resist ...

how about this?
 Plan A:  we contact the manufacturers, and hope that works.
 Plan B:  we purchase a review.demo unit and install VL on it. and publish our own review.
            that way we can  share in revenue from the hardware sales originating on our site.
 Plan C: some how come up with money for Plan B Smiley
           
  well basically, if we demonstrate on one unit that we are much better than Xubuntu etc..
 i hope the manufacturers will wake up and smell the coffee Smiley

 metvas, what is the response so far like?

I don't know. They're cute, but would I really want a computer with just a 10 gig drive and 128 megs of RAM? And a USB 1.1 port??? Welcome to 1998!

I can think of better ways to spend $99.
