$130 if you buy in bulk

A Taiwanese manufacturer is selling what is possibly the world's cheapest laptop.

The NPX-9000 costs $130 when bought in quantities of 100. It comes with a 400MHz MIPS processor, 1GB of Flash memory, 128MB SDRam and a 7in screen, similar to the first Asus EeePCs.

The laptop runs a Linux operating system and the firm is offering a Wi-Fi USB dongle as an optional extra.

The NPX-9000 also comes with a VGA port to link the system to a full-size monitor and an SD card slot for moving files.

The news will come as a blow to the One Laptop Per Child campaign, which is currently charging $188 for its hardware.

Nadhani wametumia technology ya mwanzo ya kutengeneza computer. Hatakwa mwanangu siwezi kushawishika kumnunulia maana itampa shida tu, kwani watoto wanahitaji kutumia computer kufanya wonderfull things nayo itam limit tu.

How durable is it? (Swala la kuzingatia hili maana Chinese/Taiwanese manufacturers wana mambo)

Wakuu,

Hii laptop ni nzuri kwa introduction stage kwa watoto wanaojifunza computer.

Sasa ni ya kununuliwa na watu wenye kipato cha chini na si wale ambao ni lazima wawe na laptop yenye mambo mengi.

Ndio maana wanasema itakuwa na ushindani na laptop ingine ya One Laptop Per Child campaign ambayo tayari inatumika katika nchi zinazoendelea kufundishia watoto wa shule.

..na kwa kuongezea.

..hiyo si technology ya mwanzo ya laptop, ni ya sasa. in fact hizi pc zina jina lake.

..halafu, jiulize mwanao atahitaji full pc ya nini? kama ilivyokwishasemwa, malengo ya hizi ni kutoa entry level kwa pc users wadogo [watoto] waweze kujielimisha kisasa.

..kuna hizi maarufu kama eee pc, zimenunuliwa na zinatumiwa na watu kama pipi [zimekuwa maarufu] kiasi kwamba hata acer,hp na dell wametoa/wanatoa version zao. ni ideal kwa watu walio-mobile na ambao hawafanyi kazi ambazo ni power and software demanding, kama waandishi.
