It is touch-screen device specially designed for the students. India's Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibbal this week unveiled the low-cost computing device that is designed for students, saying his department had started talks with global manufacturers to start mass production.
"We have reached a (developmental) stage that today, the motherboard, its chip, the processing, connectivity, all of them cumulatively cost around $35, including memory, display, everything," he told a news conference. The world's cheapest laptop is packed with touchscreen, Internet browsers, PDF reader and video conferencing facilities but its hardware was created with sufficient flexibility to incorporate new components according to user requirement and its a Linux based system.
