Walmart to carry $400 laptops?
There's been some vaporrware coming out of MIT from Nick Negroponte about $100 laptops for third world schoolkids - a good idea ruined by putting governments rather than markets in charge of distribution. $400 is 4 times $100, but it's a step closer.
$400 desktops have been pretty common lately - I'm writing this on a $100 recycled P2, but laptops run a bit more. I havent seen the spec on the walmart product - just a passing mention on fox. But it seems like more proof of Moore's law and the trend toward ubiquitous computing.
