That's kind of up in the air at the moment. The lab will be in a local
community center. I figure they'll need some internet capability (a web
browser; perhaps a graphical FTP client, IRC, and maybe USENET) and standard
office stuff (word processing, spreadsheet, etc.). Beyond that, I don't know.
If they want to have an internet presence of their own (web server, etc.), I'll
recommend another system for that.
I went here: http://www.affordablecomputers.com/custombuilds/aci_linthun and
specified a 700 MHz Duron, 512 MB RAM, a 30.7 GB IDE drive, 2 SMC EZ-Card 10/100
ethernet cards, Mandrake 7.2 and Star Office 5.2 preinstalled, an Onstream 30GB
IDE Digital Internal Tape Drive and media, and an APC surge supressor, for
$1117. Everything else is the standard selection. Does that seem reasonable?
