MIT's $100 laptop

Here's some photos of the first working prototype of the $100 laptop being designed by MIT labs. The idea is that every country in the world agrees to by a certain amount, to be used by those who can't afford the price of computer hardware today. You might notice the yellow handcrank on the side from the photos, it can be used to recharge the batteries when a power source isn't available.

Hell, for $100 I'd buy one. Unfortunately they're not going to be sold commercially for the foreseeable future. Probably a good idea, as the free market would probably drive the price up.

Nope, sorry, none for you. You only get one if your a child in an impoverished country. You have to pay for your freedoms like everybody else in this country. ;)
