Hardware, Embedded Systems "A Chinese company called YellowSheepRiver wants to make affordable budget computing a reality with its new $150 Linux Municator, a highly compact and innovative PC built with inexpensive Chinese hardware components. Although MIT's much touted $100 Linux laptop has yet to transcend its status as vaporware, YellowSheepRiver already has a working product which could potentially be available for purchase within the next three months." It runs on a custom 64 bit processor, derived from the MIPS processor, and as a result won't run Windows.

ONE mac mini costs like FOUR of these Chinese machines ($599). It's an unfair comparison.

If you were to bring this thing closer to the Mac mini (internal and larger HD, more memory, internal combo drive, tri-bootable, available in the U.S. through various resellers)...I imagine the differential wouldn't be nearly so much. That was my point.
