Today when I was surfing on net, I came across an interesting article that Indian students will get laptop for only $10/Rs 500. It is hard for a person like me to believe it as even 1 GB RAM of a laptop costs around Rs 1000. But it is reality as a $10 laptop with 2 GB RAM would be on display in Tirupati on February 3.v
The $10/Rs 500 laptop is like a dream and this dream comes true because of the work put in by students of Vellore Institute of Technology, scientists in Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, IIT-Madras and involvement of PSUs like Semiconductor Complex. At this moment, this laptop will cost around $20 but with the mass production this cost will come down to $10.
This laptop will have 2 GB of expandable memory, fixed internet and working Wi-Fi and will be displayed in Tirupati on February 3.
