It’s actually $64. The article says the “total of around $32, but the government might subsidize 50 percent of the price for students.”
And it’s a “touch screen” which makes it more of a tablet then a notebook/laptop. There are some that cheap on the market (not sure of quality though).
Still looks nice though.
Although I am looking at tablets now. I’d like something larger to read e-books on, watch movies, surf web, etc., where my Netbook is too bulky and my Droid cell phone is good (and small) but a tablet would be better.
“Sibal said the cost of the motherboard, chip, processing and other components cost a total of around $32, but the government might subsidize 50 percent of the price for students” So only $16 for students!!! I am willing to pay the full $32 though. http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/world_cheapest_laptop_unveiled_in_KRpiutoM84n98DbyFvhFyO
