pickyouupatnine writes "According to this story on ARS Technica, the $100 MIT Laptop is now going to cost $140. It has a new name — it'll now be called the Children's Machine 1 (CM1). But the added price comes with features! The laptop will now come with a 400 MHz AMD processor, 512 Megs of Flash storage, an SD card slot, mic and headphone jacks, a built in camera, and built-in wireless. OH.. It will also come with an 8-inch LCD at a 1280x900 resolution.

Next up from the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) — free corrective lenses for all the children who went blind trying to read the text on an 8-inch screen at 1280x900."
