$100 laptop becomes reality

The Linux-based machines are expected to have a 500MHz processor, with flash memory instead of a hard drive which has more delicate moving parts.

The laptop will be more rugged and flexible than ordinary ones
They will have four USB ports, and will be able to connect to the net through wi-fi – wireless net technology – and will be able to share data easily.

On the part of the MIT site about the $100 laptop that shows pictures, the following statement appears “Please note: these laptops are not in production. They are not‚Äîand will not‚Äîbe available for purchase by individuals.”. I suppose Dell and HP are not ready to loose a large chunk of their market yet. This machine looks as if it could do 80% of what a hulking great laptop does now…
