Has nybody bought the Fryes 1.6GHz Duron for $149.99 this weekend?

Has anyone bought this system and loaded a Windows OS on it? Any problem with driver availability or??? Am interested in purchasing for a client because I can't touch a machine like this for the price.

Because this client barely can use Windows let alone LINUX, or any other UNIX derivative.

I havent seen the inside of the 1.6GHz they are selling today but I figured they are probably using cheap onboard components (shared memory, etc). Was justl ooking for a quick way out for this guy.

Anyone else? Any positive experiences with this particular box?
