NTR (Phila) Selling Lubuntu Desktops
Sometimes A Simple Computer Is The Best
If you're one of those folks who doesn't want to fork over giant stacks of money for the latest whiz-bang gizmo with all the most fashionable bells, whistles, and doo-dads, .. If, in other words, your computing needs are fairly simple, so there's no sense wasting a lot of computer power when a simple machine will do the trick just fine, then NTR's Computer Thrift Store has what you like!
For just $99, our Linux PC will get you surfing the Net and doing your email without distracting you with irrelevant features. It has a moderate amount of memory (512 MB of RAM), a moderate amount of disk space (40 GB), and it runs an open source document suite you can use to write letters, etc, without a lot of fuss. It runs on Linux, not Windows, but since your computing needs are simple, this is exactly what you want. This machine comes with a 90-day drop-off warranty. (Even the warranty is simple: No packing and shipping.)
So, if you're one of those folks with modest computing needs, we hope you'll come home to NTR's Computer Thrift Store!
