187 dollar computer

Chinese startup YellowSheepRiver release the Municator, which seems to be the cheapest fully-functional computer that money can buy. Pretty much everything in the box seems to be Chinese made; including the Godson processor. Contrast this with the Indian counterpart Simputer, which in my opinion was much superior in terms of design, but failed to break the 200 dollar barrier (it included a touch screen, though), and used an Intel StrongARM processor.
