Earthlink Sponsors Cheap Linux PCs
The deal part about this is that you're paying $200 over the course of a year, with no financing or interest charges.
So you pay $70 for the desktop (plus shipping) and $21 per month for the dial-up service.
I can imagine a lot of people wanting a cheap server or another pc in the home hopping on this, even if they already have broadband.
Hell, if I needed another machine, I'd do it in a heatbeat. And I'd never log into the Earthlink account, and would cancel after a year.
