NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

I really really doubt it. If this is the one I saw in Pop mech awhile back, then it doesnt even have a harddrive. It uses a Linux based OS on RAM.

Still, that is a good deal. $100 for a laptop w/ WiFi and USB.

It's for the kids of the world who have never seen a computer, let alone know what a cd drive is.

It used flash memory.

Also, this thing is so underpowered, it isn't anything that any of you would want or be seen carrying it around.

Quote For example, to keep the $100 laptops from being widely stolen or sold off in poor countries, he expects to make them so pervasive in schools and so distinctive in design that it would be "socially a stigma to be carrying one if you are not a student or a teacher." He compared it to filching a mail truck or taking something from a church: Everyone would know where it came from.

I think that's cool. There are so many people that haven't even seen a computer in the world, it doesn't have to be fast or anything great for them to appreciate it. Don't say it's lame. Too many of us take for granted that we have easy access to good computers and technology in North America.

Neato...I want one....


Crappy thing is, if basically any of the world's rich folks would get a sense of charity or "global community" these every kid on earth could prolly have a laptop WITH a cd burner AND a battery....Not to mention food and clean water...but thats another thing...
