$100 computer, heard the talk, i want a few.
Well, actually, i know a number of people to whom a Pentium II would be an upgrade. With so many people on modems and older systems, the idiocy of removing the floppy becomes aggrivating. No, USB does not fill the void.
Gamers need the latest, office workers would be screaming on a PII with 256MB RAM and Win98.
Most of them have monitors, keyboards, and mice, and if they don't, placing those is cheap or trivial.
So, i just need a box with MB, Processor, Memory, Video, Sound, Hard Drive, Floppy Drive, CD.
The processor can be a PII, but i'd consider 256 MB memory a must. Video and sound can be built-in, the cheapest hard drive will likely be just fine. The floppy should be cheap enough (or grabbed from their old computer), and a cheap CD reader.
Pre-built would be better, but i haven't looked anywhere or for anything just yet. This is my introductory effort beyond just talk.
For the most part, i'd give these to a few people that need them. This has nothing to do with making money. I just wonder if i could get away with it for $100.
