If you’ve been waiting for Google to launch its own computer and operating system, that day is here.
Wal-Mart is selling a desktop computer for $199 running Linux GOS– a variant of the popular Ubuntu but with lots of optimization for Google products.
It runs on the gOS operating system and features the OpenOffice.org 2.2 software suite that gives users the ability to create word processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. Additional highlights include a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, Ethernet port and stereo speakers.
Key Features & Benefits:
- 1.5 GHz Via Technologies C7-D processor
- 512 MB of DDR2 system memory
- 80 GB hard disk drive
- DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive
- 10/100 Mbps Ethernet
- gOS operating system
Hmm, if I could only justify the purchase of yet another computer.
Note: this isn’t an official Google computer, but it’s as close as you can get!
