At the time of the purchase, Wal-Mart's review section on the gPC was looking rather dismal. There were only two posters and they both were disappointed with the fact the computer didn't run Windows. However, not a week later we checked again and the gPC was getting rave reviews from people who understand that a $200 Linux-based computer is not supposed to run Windows applications. If you are looking for an entry level system, a "kid" computer, or want to get into the Linux scene, then the gPC is a perfect solution. We can guarantee that you will get your $200 worth out of the device — in fact, we are planning on using the system as our network monitoring system/personal test station for our home network. Given the fact that it took us less than 5 minutes of interaction to install snort, acid, apache2, nessus, and a host of other security tools, you can bet this computer will get used and abused in years to come.
