Wal-Mart Offers Google-Optimized, Low Cost PC

Lora Bentley

First there were rumors of the gPhone. Now the gPC is a reality.

 

But wait a second -- it's not made by Google; it's made for Google. The New York Times reports that the Everex gPC is available at Wal-Mart for $200. The low-cost computer boasts a Linux-based OS optimized to run Gmail, Google Documents and other Google applications. It runs Firefox and OpenOffice as well.

 

The goal, according to the story, is to "move much of the processing from the PC to the Internet." A click on the Maps icon, for instance, launches Google Maps.
