Intel shows off notebook for third world

Posted on Friday, May 05 2006 @ 15:54:03 CEST by

Intel's CEO yesterday presented a prototype of a new low-cost laptop aimed at the developing world. The notebook is called 'Eduwise', it's wireless-enabled, handle-equipped and education-oriented.

The computer has a somewhat retro look and it can run Windows or Linux.
As you can see from the pics, it's has a certain retro look - think PowerBook 100 - and the colour scheme's nothing to write home about. Alas, Intel didn't provide any specs, suggesting this is more concept than commercial product. The chip maker did say the computer is equipped with a wireless stylus and software to enable collaboration between teacher and pupil.
Intel says this machine isn't a cut-down computer so it's capable of running off-the-shelf software, which gives it an edge over the $100 laptop from MIT. However, the notebook from Intel does cost four times as much. You can check out some photos over at The Register.
