The PCLinuxOS computer -- every damn thing you need for $150

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm ready to throw down $150 for this deal (plus $15 to boost the memory to
| 512 MB). There are a smattering of low-cost Linux PC deals out there, but
| this is absolutely the best. Better than Everex, better than the used stuff
| at Pacific Geek. Better than Mad Tux. Hell, better than anything. You even
| get an LCD monitor. The $150 doesn't include shipping, and I don't know how
| much that runs. But holy hell, it's cheap.
