Here's a picture of the MIT-developed $100 laptop. The computer, created in partnership with Google and AMD, is set to roll out soon. Reportedly, Intel Corp. Chairman Craig Barrett (and AMD competitor) said users will not want such a device.
MIT had originally said it is for the people/children of the Third World and €œwon€™t be available for purchase by individuals.€ (Although that tune has recently changed and commercial versions are actively being explored.) The computer will be manufactured by Taiwan's Quanta, which is the world's largest maker of laptops.
Here's what we wrote before about how these cheap laptops might revolutionize the market.
