Computers For ‘Next Billion People’

Could this be the laptop that allows every student to have his or her own computer? Universal possession of a computer is highly desirable goal in that it allow for a range of new services to be offered. Test taking and homework can now be assigned with the teacher knows for a fact that the student has the required computer. Anything that is mandatory requires that the student has the necessary tools.

Will this computer be it? Difficult to know, but I think we are going in the right direction. I predict that it will be the lowering flash memory prices that will allow for the creation of a low-cost solid state computer. Such a computer will be more rugged, better on battery life, and near instantaneous in its start-ups and shut-downs.

This unit is from Intel. AMD has its own design.
