World’s cheapest laptop goes on sale

By on

A Taiwanese manufacturer is selling what is possibly the world’s cheapest laptop.

The NPX-9000 is selling for US$130, although it is only being sold in batches of 100.

It comes with a 400 MHz MIPS processor, 1GB of flash memory, 128 MB SDRAM and a seven inch screen, similar to the first Asus EeePCs. It runs a Linux operating system and is offering a Wi-Fi USB dongle as an optional extra.

The laptop also comes with a VGA port to link the system to a full sized monitor and an SD card slot for moving files.

The news will come as a blow to the One Laptop Per Child campaign, which is currently $188 for its hardware.
