Where Bristol Wireless leads, Tesco follows
Following on from Bristol Wireless’ sale of internet-ready Linux computers for £50, news reaches the lab that well-known supermarket chain Tesco, once described by a TV comedy programme as “the world’s first retail state”, has now commenced sales of entry level PCs with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed.
Tesco’s Linux machines cost slightly more than ours do, but two models – one with an Intel Celeron processor, the other with an AMD processor – are available from the retail giant at £139.93 and £189.93 respectively. Both are base units and come minus monitors. However, Clubcard holders will also qualify for points on these purchases.
However, if you want to support your local community wireless co-operative, Bristol Wireless is still selling internet-ready Linux machines for £50 if you don’t mind a refurbished machine: you may not get Clubcard points with our machines, but you do get a monitor. 😉 Please contact us for details.
Can I flyer that around bristol uni? Got any flyers? Looks great! Lots of students here, probably members of the juvenile laptoperati, but there may be some still strapped for cash…
I’ll email you one 🙂
