Have a look at the product with quicklinx (top-right input box): 3QV3WS

The machine which costs GBP 140 +tax comes with Mandrake Linux. It probably
includes Open Office and pretty much any piece of software that you will
ever need. I believe you will need to but the box separately, but it is
still a huge bargain, especially if you need plenty of software.
