I've been following MIT's $100 Laptop .
MIT just unveiled the prototype on 11/16 in Tunisia.
The laptops will be used to provide access were it is typically missing.
The MIT Media Lab does great work!
What is the $100 Laptop, really?
The proposed $100 machine will be a Linux-based, full-color, full-screen laptop that will use innovative power (including wind-up) and will be able to do most everything except store huge amounts of data. This rugged laptop will be WiFi-enabled and have USB ports galore. Its current specifications are: 500MHz, 1GB, 1 Megapixel.
