As we said this is an amazing project, but researchers in India are saying that they can make a laptop for $10 (now that would change a lot of children’s lives if made possible).
This is 10 times more computers and laptops than the OLPC; these could be made available to poor and underprivileged communities in third world nations and India.
Officials have said that they are considering two different design proposals from a researcher from the Indian Institute of Science and an engineering student from the Vellore Institute of Technology. Both of these designs are said to cost around $50 to make which that cost would be reduced to $10 with advances in distribution and manufacturing techniques. - Source: Product Reviews Net Via Times of India
