$100 Laptop Launched!
Wow! Great spanking new images of a fully functional $100 Laptop. I want one!
Since my last 2 posts, one which was a review on the $100 Laptop and the other on it’s operating system, I heard the OLPC project had some problems getting the product out, due to something like not able to meet the BOM cost and thus not meeting the $100 selling price.
But never say never, take a look at these great photos thanks to Robert Fadel, OLPC Director of Finance and Operations at his ultra-secret and extra ninja mode blog.
Great looking interface, and I’m glad they dropped the original yellow/orange for this fresher white/green color scheme. Also check out the antenna ears! Nice idea. Its a pity it is powered by the mains, I still like the original idea of a hand wound charged battery
Ah how I wish I was part of this product’s design team! I take my hat off and applaude all the efforts taken by the people involved. I guess being in Singapore, we dont qualify for one as we are not third world anymore eh?
