1.5 Ghz VIA C7CPU

80gb HDD

Comes with keyboard, mouse, speakers, dvdr/cdr, but no monitor. Runs on linux. Comes bundled with the OpenOffice suite.

I fully support anything that will make Linux more widely disliked by the general public.

Wow.. i think that is pretty big news that Walmart is selling anything with a non Microsoft OS. That could really spur the spread of alternative operating systems.
