Walmart laptopWe're not too sure how well these things are going to sell without the Dell girl hawking them, but Walmart is counting on a rebranded ECS A535 with a sub-$600 selling point to hit hard this back-to-school season. Not surprisingly, it's got an Athlon CPU (1.6GHz), a 14-inch XGA screen, gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, 40GB hard drive, DVD-ROM, WiFi, XP Home, and a rather pathetic 128MB RAM. Still, you've got to give them credit. Only Walmart can (and would) sell a laptop with a $3.75 margin.
