Computer Shopper builds a $250 Linux PC

Well, considering my recent ruminations on the low-end PC market (and the still high expense of an LCD monitor), it was timely to discover that over at Computer Shopper they’ve put together a complete PC, less monitor, for $250. Coincidentally the cost of the Zonbu unit when you don’t sign on for their subscription storage service.

Interestingly, their OS of choice is Ubuntu. More on this tomorrow…

    Alas, I suspect it doesn’t run ~10W, which is a BIG selling point for me…
