$100 laptop coming next year
,----[ Quote ]
| The $100 laptop at the heart of the OLPC (One Laptop
| Per Child) initiative aimed at school children in
| developing countries will start rolling off
| production lines in the second quarter of next year.
| Although the final numbers will depend on how many
| orders come in for the $100 laptops, Quanta expects
| to produce 10 million of the devices in the first
| year of production, a company representative said today.
The target is to produce 300-500 million of these within years.
This would also lower the production costs.
