A Linux Touchscreen computer for Seniors

quarterbuck (1268694) writes "Journal has a review of the Telikin, an all-in-one desktop, with a touch screen, that starts at $699 and comes from a small Philadelphia-area start-up called Venture 3 Systems.
It is much simplified (no powerpoint editing for eg.) and the hardware is thought through (two microphones), but the review is claiming that the software is still buggy."

They offer two models, both of which run a dual core Atom processor (low-end runs 1.8Ghz, high-end runs slower 1.6Ghz). Only 2GB of RAM should be OK for most Linux implementations (though they have a custom Linux stack so who knows how efficient it is while supporting a touch screen).

These are basically Linux iMac clones targeted at 'seniors'. They market them as 'virus free', 'virus resistant', 'crash resistant' and 'upgrades for life'.
