A company is now selling what it calls the "world's cheapest laptop," which at $130, is not a bad deal if you can bear some hardware limitations.
The Impulse NPX-9000 laptop has a 7-inch screen and comes with the Linux OS. It has a 400MHz processor, 128M bytes of RAM, 1G byte of flash storage and an optional wireless networking dongle. It includes office productivity software, a Web browser and multimedia software.
There is always a catch with these things. The trend of lowering PC costs is starting to be more popular. I wonder if anyone will even buy these PCs in bulk like this, though.
So many students have dual core/2GB laptops and just use office... (ok I am talking about serious students, no the ones who browsed the net, play games during classes :) )
Hey, I can remember when I didn't see a need for a computer at home. these things can still take off. (I can also remember not seeing any business application to the idea of having multiple computers connected remotely).
