There are several ARM Cortex A8 SOC laptops shipping soon that use the 
TI OMAP 3530

or Freescale i.MX515

Always Innovating Touch Book - to ship in late Spring, starts at $300

Freescale touts Android on ARM netbook design

They use u-boot and are almost all open source except for the powerVR 
GPU libraries.

I've heard that Nokia is trying to get Imagination Technologies to open 
source the libs.
