This custom-built desktop computer is designed in the image of a new "Android." The G2 PC is based on the Via C7-based Nano-ITX board, and comes with an 800MHz processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, and 80GB of hard disk storage space. This is not much of a supercomputer, but it's powerful enough that you can do multiple tasks.
As Google's Android G1 is set to introduce cell phone users to all the mobile aspects of Linux, gOS hopes the Android G2 PC will bring the same excitement to households.
DonorsChoose.org aims to provide students with the books, technology, and supplies they need. It's the kind of organization that could always use some more funding.
At the time of this writing, the bid for the computer was at $280. Now, that's not much funding at all. The auction will go for another six days, if you want to join and win. But, if you can't wait, you can always donate directly at DonorsChoose.org.
