Journal Journal: $100 PC Now Costs $130, Due in April, 2007 2

From this link: ""

"Nicholas Negroponte of MIT's Media Lab showed off the latest version of his $100 OLPC (One Laptop Per Child), the Linux-based laptop that will begin shipping to developing countries starting in April, 2007. The 2-pound laptop won't cost $100, though. Its price will actually be between $130 and $140 not including shipping, but Negroponte expects that $100 price point to be reached by the end of 2008 when manufacturing has scaled up to 5 to 6 million units."
