Wal-Mart seems to be the current winner in the drive to provide cheap PCs.  The Green GPC that they currently have on sale is $199, $299 with a 17″ LCD.  You aren’t going to be impressed by it’s benchmark scores, but being able to buy a full PC for cheaper than an iPod is certainly an accomplishment on it’s own.

“WAL-MART has begun offering a $199 Linux PC powered by VIA’s C7-D Processor.

The Everex TC2502 Green gPC comes with 512MB of DDR2 system memory and a 80GB hard disk.

It runs gOS operating system, which is based on Ubuntu 7.10, and, apparently, sports a friendly green front end.”
