I Want My Eee PC!

Kairosnews, Sept 19, 2007

More angst about the OLPC, the price of which is not up to $188. Of course, prom my perspective, the prive has hardly budged at all. The Canadian dollar was around 70 cents when the project was announced. Now it's almost 99 cents. The price - in U.S. dollars - may be rising, but U.S. dollars are becoming cheaper and cheaper for me to buy. Meanwhile, there's more competition for the OLPc on the horizon, Asus's new Eee PC, coming in at $199.
