Fancy a PC for just $199?

| Posted: Sep 2, 2002 11:09 am

Well you can have one. Yes, while reading over at The INQ I noticed the $199 PC promised by the makers of the Lindows operating system is now available from Wallmart online. Perfect for those who like to type lots of letters and find fragging a bore.

The Microtel-branded PCs use VIA's C3 processor combined with Lindows to sneak under the $200 barrier. A version of the PC box sporting Windows XP Home edition costs a full $100 more at $299.

 

The PC boxes come without a monitor but sport a 800MHz VIA C3 processor with 133MHz Front Side Bus, 128MB SDRAM, integrated 2D/3D graphics and a 10GB hard disk. Wallmart also offer a range of OS-less PCs, irking the mighty Microsoft.
