India introduces $35 tablet
Here's one for the books. The Indian government late last week unveiled a concept tablet computer set to sell for a mere 1,500 rupees, or about $35 USD. Whats even more surprising is that the price could drop even further for a device that features touchscreen capabilities and solar power options. The gadget, developed by the elite Indian Institute of Technology and the Indian Institute of Science, is part of a push to give students a better education and technical skills needed to boost India's economic growth.
Since this is not out in the market yet, here are other recommended low cost laptops:
Apple iBook G3 800mhz 256MB 30GB CDROM 12.1'' w/ Original Airport (WIFI)
Dell Latitude D800 Laptop Computer System Centrino/Pentium M Processor Wireless XP Pro
Compaq EVO N610C
