"Shock, horror! he's not trying to sell"
As I said last night check out Tesco, Woolworths, Asda, Aldi and of
all places Staples these outlets are doing some cracking deals
especially with the run up to Christmas. When looking at these
machines look at them from the *Value for Money* point of view rather
than *Raw processing power* you're not gonna get a Clay Computer for
27p but you can get a pretty cool Acer for just over £300 from ASDA at
the moment.

If you punt around you can get a really good spec for under £300.00
anything under £270 inc VAT bite their hand off.

I'm happy to sell you something but remember I have to make a small profit :-(

Arch Linux is an independent i686-optimized community distribution for
intermediate and advanced Linux users. Utilising a Rolling Release
System packages are regularly updated and an ISO release is just a
snapshot to the stable packages at that time. So there's no need for a
fresh install the command 'pacman –Syu' upgrades the whole system.
