You really can’t expect much when buying a $200 desktop that’s from a somewhat “off brand” company but Walmart has done its research and that research shows many Walmart customers are not too bright when it comes to computers.
It’s not the most attractive desktop one could buy but then again it shouldn’t be because it’s equipped with “ho-hum” hardware like a 1.5GHz VIA C7 processor on a mini-ITX motherboard (which are small), 512MB of memory and an 80GB hard drive.
Don’t expect Windows with this, all you’ll get is a Linux distro. I said that mini-ITX motherboards are small and that was just for the uninitiated, right now you should be wondering why it comes in a full size desktop case and that’s where the research Walmart did comes in to play.
That research said a majority of Walmart shoppers equate the size of a system to its capabilities and as Gadget Lab says people that shop there are “that unsophisticated” which is a much more polite term that I would have used but it fits.
On a side note, Everex is marketing this as a “GreenPC” because the low-end hardware doesn’t use much power but on the other hand they stuck it inside a large plastic case (which was and is totally unnecessary). I don’t think it will recycle well which negates the “green” part.
