Sorry if I'm asking something stupid, but why a hard disk is not referred?
I don't think that they just forget it.

No your question is not stupid at all.

Perhaps this will explain.

Ive got the initial PB from last year $99 11" screen.
For what it is it works well. I did load Manjaro as the UBU install left a LOT to be desired.
For ME the screen resolution is "trying to hard", what I mean is sure everyone wants a hi rez laptop running 600 FPS for Doom19, but at $99 its not going to happen. CHanging the resolution into something that you can work with is FAR from intuitive (Linux has been my only OS for about 12 years). The Battery is GREAT. The touchpad, blows. Im sure I could find the specs but my VGA level web cam had better resolution, Ive never used it and NOT required the mouse.
I was all set to buy the PBPro when I started working on my own system. Now Im about 4 hourts from finishing, Ill let you know when Im done. But essentially its a Tablet/Laptop that isn't a compromise,
