Cheap $199 Linux Computer from Shuttle

Asus’ Eee PC is the cheapest Linux laptop out there. Now Shuttle introduced its $199 KPC Linux PC. The company didn’t have it on display on the actual floor of the convention halls here at the Consumer Electronics Show (too late did I find out you had to zip over to a private suite at the Bellagio for a look-see), but booth representatives were happy to talk details. “It’s meant for simple tasks,” said sales rep James Wonpu.

Would you go for such cheap PC?

    Looks good for new users. But I have been computing for 38 years, my needs are slowly climbing to supercomputer level.
