Is it really possible to get a new computer for only $25? - seems to think so

So, what is Xtra-PC anyway?

Xtra-PC is a tiny USB device that you plug into an old, tired or dead PC to give it new life. Basically, it’s a custom streamlined operating system that runs completely off of the Xtra-PC USB device, completely bypassing Windows. Since it runs 100% off the USB, it doesn’t interfere with any files on your hard drive and doesn’t uninstall anything. The Xtra-PC operating system even works on PCs with a missing or crashed hard drive, which is a nice feature if your computer will no longer boot to Windows.


The Xtra-PC OS automatically recognized in installed the correct drivers and software to run my wireless internet adapter, CD-ROM, display, and all other necessities. Initial setup took about 10 mins from start to finish.

If you’re a techie like me, you’ll recognize that Xtra-PC is basically a custom version of the Linux operating system. Linux is known amongst geeks for being rock-solid, considerably faster, and far less vulnerable to viruses than Windows. Running Linux squeezes extra performance out of older processors, which is big part of Xtra-PC’s “secret sauce.”
