Everex Cloud: Walmart Linux Laptop release on Feb 25th

Everex, the makers of the ultra cheap and Linux based desktop at Walmart, will be releasing a laptop version on Feb 25th according to Computer World. The laptop was supposed to come out today but because of some reported glitches that needed to be fixed, they put off the launch. I think that this is great that Linux is in the spotlight for distribution and hopefully will become even more of a household name. The laptop is said to be priced at $399 and includes a 30 GB hard drive. A lot of users may still hesitate to pickup this cheap laptop as they can get more specs out of a Dell laptop for around $500.
