Intel: "Poor countries won't want the $100 laptop"

Posted on Sunday, December 11 2005 @ 01:50:14 CET by


Intel's Chairman Craig Barrett said cheap $100 notebooks aren't useful for the developing world.
Schoolchildren in Brazil, Thailand, Egypt and Nigeria will begin receiving the first few million textbook style computers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) media lab run by Nicholas Negroponte from early 2006.

"Mr. Negroponte has called it a $100 laptop -- I think a more realistic title should be 'the $100 gadget'," Barrett, chairman of the world's largest chip maker, told a press conference in Sri Lanka. "The problem is that gadgets have not been successful."
Barrett claims the machine's limited range of programs will make it a bad choice as people want something that has the full functionality of a PC. More info over here.
