Asus chairman Jonney Shih sprang a surprise during Intel's Computex keynote today with the announcement of a $189 laptop...

...The notebook uses a custom-written Linux operating system, much like the OLPC, though unlike the OLPC, Asus has chosen a more conventional interface. The desktop looked fairly similar to Windows and we saw Firefox running on one 3ePC.

The article also said that this laptop uses solid state storage, and boots under 15 seconds, has 512MB of RAM, but the CPU remains as a mystery."
