There is a great initiative taking place in the world that plans to create millions of specially design laptop computers for the children of the world. The computer is designed to cost $100 each. The mandate is to put one of these laptops into the hands of each child to enable them to get an enhanced education.
For all of the details about these units go to www.laptop.org.
Unfortunately, these units will not be available to purchase in our favourite computer stores but I believe the break-through design strategies will put more pressure on all laptop vendors to design more cost-effective units.
