- "The era of the $100 laptop PC may be on the horizon"
Interesting article indeed. More interesting is that the main speaker is AMDs CEO.
A $100 laptop will be amazing. Heck we already have $500 laptops at walmart. But I think this $100 laptop wont be available till at least 2009 or 2010.
Heck I am looking at a laptop for college right now. The laptops themselves start out cheap, but I always want the extra battery, better screen and a 3 year accdiental dropage warranty. So I start out at $1250 plus tax then I jump up to $2100 with all the extra junk.
So let me kind of think what this 100 laptop will have. A cheap 10-14 in screen. Proably a 2ghz or less processor. Integrated video and maybe linux on a 5GB hd.
