Nice to know about low cost PC. However, I have a couple of queries.
Before hopping on to this new machine, is there any measure /
study that was done using this machine. I mean as far as machine
performance is concerned, how is it going to be reliable?..
We can compare by running a program (that incorporates iterative
functions/procedures/modules) and comparing the CPU time / Elapsed
Time with the with the normal Intel / any processor of almost same clock
speed. That would show up whether this is reliable or not.
If anybody knows , please throw light on this area so that it could be
beneficial for people to assess the performance.
The numbers associated with price seem to be cogent.
Expecting feedback on this!

Now, a branded PC for less than Rs 15,000
NEW DELHI, Oct. 23
YOU can now buy a branded personal computer for under Rs 15,000,
provided you are not very fastidious about Intel processors and
Windows Software. Esys Distribution Ltd, a global IT component
distributor, today launched its `ePC' at prices starting from Rs
9,990, excluding the monitor.
The ePC is powered by VIA C3 800 MHz Central Processing Unit (CPU)
and runs the free-cost Linux operating system. With a monitor, the PC
would cost below Rs 15,000 only, company officials said here.
"This PC is for a totally new segment and we are not competing with
other branded computers," said Mr Vikas Goel, Chairman and Managing
Director of the Singapore-based Esys Distribution Group. "We are
introducing this product as a concept in the market," he said.
Apart from the basic, Internet-ready model, two more versions of the
ePC are available: One at Rs 11,990 and another at Rs 16,990. Both
come without monitors.
