The Linux-based sub $300 PC sold out when it first appeared at Wal-Mart , and it is back in stock.
The Everex TC2502 Green gPC had proved to be a surprise best seller amongst Linux fans and budget-minded PC shoppers. Wal-Mart introduced the gPC earlier this month, but it quickly sold out online. It was one of the top performing desktop computers available at Walmart.com. It was also the first Linux-based desktop machine to be offered for sale by a major retailer.
The gPC has the gOS operating system onboard and a 1.5 GHz processor made by Via Technologies. The rest of the specs include an 80 Gbyte hard drive and 512 Mbyte of DDR2 memory. It does not have a monitor, but does have stereo speakers and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive.
