The $100 laptop will cost more

Posted on Monday, August 28 2006 @ 00:45:23 CEST by

The $100 notebook from MIT will 40 percent more expensive than planned but will feature slightly better specifications.
With a 500-unit field test ready to begin in September, the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program has announced that the much-anticipated, now-$140 laptop will be called Children's Machine 1 (CM1). Although MIT failed to reach the $100 price point, the Linux-based laptop is a remarkable achievement. Manufactured by Chinese hardware company Quanta, the rugged, portable computer features a 400mhz AMD Geode processor (the original prototypes had a 366mhz processor), 128MB of DRAM, built-in wireless support, and 512MB of flash memory for internal storage.
Other features include: SD memory card slot, microphone, speaker jacks and a digital camera. More info at ARS Technica.
