Review of $100 Laptop

July 26, 2007

This has been making the rounds so you might have seen it – Fox News has a very good review of the $100 laptop, though right now it’s hovering around $160 and, uh, you can’t buy one.  “Get in line behind about a billion children,” says OLPC Chief Technology Officer Mary Jo Jepson.

Short version: amazingly low power consumption, great networking, good interface, tough construction, and the best screen ever for viewability in full sunlight.  You can customize applications for it, which means it’ll be used in unexpected ways, too.

Shouldn’t they be making a version in charcoal grey and selling it for $250 to businesses?

    This qualifies as the best news I’ve heard in a week.

    The Scientific Indian links through to an Economist review – they were similarly impressed.

    Wake up, laptop manufacturers of the world!!!  Your ass is about to be bitten off.
