 Chinese $150 Linux mini-PC races OLPC to market

I can see myself buying a sub 200 buck computer. I would give it to the kids as a web and chat box. Would work great and they would love having another machine available.

"A Chinese company is touting an inexpensive Linux-based computer as a way to close the "digital divide." YellowSheepRiver's $150 "Municator" appears to be available now, with a three-month leadtime, suggesting it could reach market well ahead of MIT's $100 "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) device."
