Why a $100 PC might be just the thing

I understand the name brand companies (HP, IBM, Dell, etc.) believe the lowest possible price point for a modern computer is about $400. But if you’re running a small business, and you need a system for e-mail, word processing, and Web browsing, saving $300 for a comparable system makes a big difference. Think of it as getting four computers for the price of one and see if that doesn’t stretch your budget.

Here’s a list of some companies selling systems with Xandros, another excellent desktop Linux OS.

And the one which fascinates me the most: KooBox. Complete system, including LCD monitor, for $449. Guess I’m going to have to ask for an evaluation unit to see how it really works.
