According to this story at THG, Linare will soon be offering a competing $500 laptop on Walmart stores, the good news however is that the specs of the machine are considerably better than Linspire's who also announced a similarly priced notebook in recent weeks.

Instead of the Balance's 1.0 GHz Via C3 processor, Linare equips its LADBSD250 model with an AMD Athlon 1800+. Other features include a 40 GByte harddrive, 128 MByte memory, a CD-ROM drive, an Ethernet port and the firm's Linare OS as well as Open Office. For an additional $100, the company upgrades the notebook with 256 MByte memory and a DVD drive.
