The $100 laptop prototype was shown to the world about two-weeks ago via a wonderful picture gallery. However, the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) will not be able to make its target price of $100 when it gets released in April of 2007. The laptops will initially cost between $130 and $140 but should be able to reach $100 by the end of 2008.
Initially governments will be able to buy this laptop but there have also been thoughts of releasing it to consumers. If the laptop was sold to consumers for less than $150 then we might see a hot item around Christmas time!
