Computadoras baratas…


Siempre hay alguien por ahí que me pregunta dónde conseguir computadoras baratas para labores simples:  Internet, escuchar música, ver videos, hacer cartitas, etc…

A esta fecha, hay tres alternativas:

1) Wal-Mart sells this Everex gPC for $198. It’s bundled with speakers, a mouse, and a keyboard, and it comes with 24-hour tech support. The operating system is called gOS, a version of Ubuntu 7.10. Despite the fact that many mainstream consumers have likely never even heard of Ubuntu, Wal-Mart is having trouble keeping the gPC in stock.

2) Mirus and Linspire collaborated on the Mirus Linux PC (shown here), which is now for sale at Its retail price is $299, but an included $100 rebate brings it to $199. It comes preloaded with Freespire 2.0, an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution.

3) At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month, Shuttle introduced its KPC (shown here). It’ll include an Intel Celeron processor, a 945GC chipset, 512MB of memory, and either a 60GB or 80GB hard drive. What it won’t have: an optical drive or a PCI Express slot. It comes in red, blue, white, and black, each with a different icon stamped on the front. Shuttle also says there will also be a $99 bare-bones version of the KPC. That version will have the option of upgrading to a Core 2 Duo processor and 1GB of memory.

Claro, también está la Zonbu:

Lo mejor de la Zonbu es que realmente conocen a su clientela:


Aunque todas traen Linux, los más aventureros pueden instalar Wine y ponerle DirectX9 e instalar sus juegos preferidos. Lamentablemente, no ofrezco ayuda aquí, están por su cuenta con eso….
