You’ve heard of the $100 Laptop (that actually costs more), but how about a $10 laptop? I guess this would be called the Ultra-ultra-low-cost portable computer. Apparently universities in India are working on creating a $10 laptop for higher education studies. I’m sure there are government subsides in involved in this, and who knows what it really means, of it could come to be with government subsides or not, But, at least they are trying.
I imagine the folks at Asus are trying to figure out how to add a version of this to their roadmap.
