The gPC is available now at Wal-Mart for $200, including a keyboard and mouse. A monitor costs extra...and, yes, they made the box much larger than it needed to be to convince the Wal-Mart customers that this was a "real" computer. For this price, the gPC is just the thing to keep the kids away from your PowerBook, plug into the car, or make your new office look fully equipped.
UPDATE: Its a hit! WalMart's warehouse is sold out; but check individual stores for availability.
