actually there was the OLPC program which intel had signed up on only to then remove support for later (some theories suggest intel purposely tried to scupper the project when they realized the potential market for affordable laptops in developing nations, and tried to push their own solution, the classmate)

OLPC *IS STILL* operational. Intel created a competing product because AMD was used in the OLPC... this created problems in getting either types into the market... as the OLPC is designed to be a low-cost way to get 3rd-world kids to have computers.

Then intel agrees to join... then leaves.
Looking at the stats of this thing above... its WAY slow and crumble-some. Windows7? OLPC uses its own linux-based (I believe) customized OS (You can run it on your desktop PC if you want) that is multi-language in that its more visual-icon based, rather than text.

AMD's Fusion chip is better, easily.

old technology. I had hoped they would either go with the slower, but much more battery efficient ARM, or, with an Intel N550 that at least has performance and battery life benefits over the N450, as well as is more cost efficient!
