View Full Version : Sub $100 laptop
29th Sep 2005, 08:20 pm
Similiar, in some ways, to the clockwork radio, comes the sub $100 laptop (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4292854.stm). It's an interesting idea and will see parts of the world previously without the technology get somewhere nearer it (although $100 is small fortune to a lot of people). I wonder what MS thinks of the fact it's going to run Linux?!

Well since you can't get a proper MS OS for under $100, they can't really complain. Apparently the XP Starter Edition (http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/newsroom/winxp/08-10WinXPStarterFS.mspx) costs $15 to $35 to hardware developers but it appears to be crippled (http://news.com.com/Windows+for+India,+others+wont+run+on+faster+chips/2100-1016_3-5704942.html) and cannot be used on modern PCs.
