Why not Tesco? You can get a better GNU/Linux box with Ubuntu 6.04 (LTS)
preinstalled for roughly the same price as the rest who sell eSys boxes. Just
avoid PC World or Dabs (they got acquired).

The eSys machines are, as you already know, better specced than that gOS
machine which assumes you want your data on a third party (Google). I've had
my eSys box for over 2 years at home. It's my main machine and it never
required upgrades or fixes of broken hardware.
