Can this $159 PC made by GQ (Great Quality) actually be used for more than a doorstop? Well ExtremeTech purchased one of these at their local Fry’s Electronics shop and gave us a review. It doesn’t come loaded with Windows OS but rather Linspire previously known as Lindows. This $159 PC features a ECS 741GX-M Motherboard, USB 2.0 Ports, 40GB Western Digital Hard Drive, BenQ 52X CD-Rom Drive, 128MB DDR333 Memory, and a Sempron 2400 Processor. To top off the package, it comes bundled with speakers, keyboard, and mouse. Not too shabby for a complete system minus the monitor for just $159.
“At $159, you almost can’t go wrong. We tried pricing out the components, and the best we could come up with was right around $200, so building it yourself isn’t as good an option as buying, in this case. Note that the normal price is $269, but even then, that’s pretty cheap.”
