There are two model available, a DOS version priced at Php13,999 and one with Windows 7 Starter installed at Php17,999.
We recommend the DOS version, and just have it bundled with an OEM copy of Windows 7 Starter which is priced at Php1,999. This makes the total cost with Windows Php15,998. Or better yet, why not try Ubuntu Linux and maximize your savings.
Update: As suggested by a reader, the Aspire One D522 at Php17,900 is really a better choice.
