Even though the website is not up yet , we have started on some of the projects [ we are still looking for volunteers ] anyway we purchased 4 dell latitudes c640 from each with 30 gig drives cdrw pentium 4 2ghz and 256mb ram no os with them they each cost between $ 475 and $ 550
Mandrake 10. 0 official great install picked up all the drivers wireless was a little tricky but 15mins it worked great overall rating 7 out of 10.

Next was suse 9.1 again great install the only problem i encountered both with suse and mandrake was the left and right clicking of the mousepad .

Finally white box derived from rhes3 the best install of the three it lacked software but it is a business platform , but mouse rean great and super fast all three gave me instant 3d enablement with ati radeon video card which was a pleasant change.
