Negroponte's $100 laptop unveiled

This 100$ laptop was announced last january by Nicholas Negroponte (from the MIT Media Lab) at the World Economic Forum.
Here (and here) are some pictures of the notebook/tabletPC which - unfortunately - won't be available for sale, but will be directly distributed to schools through large government initiatives.

Some specs:

  • OS: Linux;
  • 500 MHz processor;
  • 1 Gb memory;
  • Wi-Fi support;
  • 4 USB ports;
  • dual mode display (full color/black and white sunlight-readable);
  • Power: current, battery, windup crank;

Well, I'd gladly buy one for, let's say, 300$, allowing two more PCs to be donated.
