In case you missed it, the Litl Webbook is a unique "cloud-based netbook" with only 2GB of local storage, a presumably Linux-based custom OS, and a 12-inch display that bends over into "easel mode." Here's what it looks like action:
This video from CrunchGear shows that the operating system is all about simplicity. From the cloud-based storage and OS updates, to the "Web Card" home screen tiles used to represent Web sites. On that screen, there's no menus, no folders, no resizable windows--just Web sites and a search box at the top.
Sounds like a great first laptop for kids until you see the $700 price tag.
