Computing on the cheap

Hey, want a laptop that has 3-4X the range of typical laptop WiFi antennae (up to ~1Km); one that uses only 2 Watts, one tenth the power consumption of a typical laptop; one you can recharge the battery without having to plug it into an outlet; and if you do want to, you can plug it in to any outlet in the world without worrying about the local voltage?

All of that and more, for $100?

It's coming, but not to your nearest store, it's going to kids in underdeveloped countries. In fact, Brazil wants a million of 'em!

The $100 laptop.
