It's on the site he provided. Pretty much the same as the Eee PC.

...hella alot cheaper than the asus r2h...Its slighty faster than the celeron the eee pc has and it also comes with ddr2...i just hope the ram is upgradable...if it is, its going to be a steal :)  ...i also dont mind the 30 gb hdd instead of the solid state hd the eee pc has...

Yup, it's another good option for those that need cheap technology. I don't know much about VIA CPU's though.

edit: I find it interesting that they are using walmart as a vendor.

Wasn't Dell also going to use Walmart as a vendor? Well, it fits with the whole "cheaper price segment" bit.

Dell does use walmart. Not sure how that's working out for them though.

Hmm. That's definitely disappointing. That's a dealbreaker for me, so it looks like I'll be sticking with the EEE. :(

Probably working out good for dell. People who go to walmart to get a computer, probably don't know much about PCs in general. If they did, they probably wouldn't buy dell.
