Amazon has the Zipit Z2 for something like $20.00 after shipping/handling.  It is a small computer that can be made to run Linux.  So I bought one of course.  It doesn't list the price you have to add it to your cart to get it.  I don't know how many they have so get yours soon.
If you're looking for a really cheap little machine might be a bit of fun.  Keep in mind you have to flash it with Linux which I'm pretty sure violates your warranty.
I had Linux on an original Zipit, it was only command line but a fun little toy, but kinda of limited by the space on the machine.

If anybody gets one let me know.  If anybody has one please let me know how it worked out for you.  Think it will be a fun little project.
