Back in 1995, Eric Schmidt, chief scientist at Sun Microsystems Inc., said the following in regard to "a $500 'Network PC'":
"'The device will have the processing power of a PC; it just doesn't have all that other stuff,' like CDROM drives and giant hard disks."
Just in case you don't know, Eric Schmidt is today Google's CEO.
