First Official Pictures Of The $100 Laptop

The first working prototype of that 100$ laptop we all heard about was unveiled yesterday at the Seven Countries Task Force meeting. Here are the official pictures for your viewing pleasure. The thing looks ok, but a bit too teletubbyish for my taste. Maybe they should tone down the coloring and get rid of the horns before entering the manufacturing process.


  • Good to see this project is coming along! I'm definitely with you on the coloring and case styling. Way too teletubbyish indeed. But it looks like they've got Fedora Core 5 running on them. I'm a fan of that!

  • On the blue one, it looks like the "horn" is an antennae for wireless, and on the others, those are the covers to keep crap from getting in the jacks. Colours? Well, it's for children. But yay Linux!
