everex & gos myminiPC
Everex in conjunction with gOS on Monday introduced a limited-edition MyMiniPC that runs on gOS Space 2.9, a Linux-based operating system made for MySpace users with brand new MySpace Apps. Basically a special edition of the Everex gPC mini, the computer is unique thanks to the OS and a new icon dock made up of the newest MySpace Apps and Web 2.0 entertainment media sites. The mission of MyMiniPC is to offer quicker, more efficient and user-friendly access to MySpace and its numerous offerings, all the while bringing Linux more mainstream.
Created with input from MySpace, MyMiniPC is marketed as a solution for users "whose activities are consistently tied to the web and less to the desktop," according to Chuck Rosendahl, MySpace San Francisco Managing Director.
The MyMiniPC, like the gPC mini on which it's based, features a 1.86GHz Pentium dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, DVD recorder, and HD audio and DV outputs. MyMiniPC retails for the same $499 as gPC mini and is available on the Everex web store now.
