    I like that note-taking gadget.. very smart. I realise they're wanting maximum running time and/or to cut costs, but a 1024x768 screen would suit better and it would benefit from at least some L2 cache, rather than none at all.

    I've been watching with interest since the inception of the '100$ laptop' . What I've always wondered is what happens to all the old technology we have finished with, and why there is a need, if any to produce more computer in the first place? CPUs from just a few years back would do exactly the same thing as these new units. Indeed how many regular readers of Bit-Tech have bags of old stuff, graphics, mbs, cpus etc? We could have a yearly pool of this stuff and make machines to send to poor areas of the world?

    fixed :)

    I agree with the above. Even a mobile Celeron is enough to run XP.
