Sears.com offers the cheapest desktop PC at $185

Another low-end PC hit the market today, this time it is a machine by Mirus equipped with Freespire 2.0, available at Sears' online shop for $185.

The Mirus desktop system is equipped with an Intel Celeron D 420-1.6Ghz, 1GB of RAM, 80GB HDD, CDRW optical drive, and Freespire 2.0.

This is the first system to come pre-installed with the new CNR.com Client, a free Linux software delivery service developed by the makers of Linspire and currently still in beta. Installation of Linux software for both Debian and RPM-based distributions takes place in a single click, and updates are typically automatic.

This system retails for $284.99, but comes with a promotional Mail-in $100 rebate, making it less expensive than the cheapest Wal-Mart PC, the $199, gOS-equipped Everex TC2502.
