I'd like having a laptop that could be used without needing to plug it in somewhere to charge. :) Too bad there won't be any of those available for individuals to buy... :(

It's a $100 dollar laptop.... of course it's crap. It's probably better than the six year old computer I have, which still surfs the internet fine and runs word processing applications. It doesn't need to be able to play doom 3 to provide people in third world nations basic computing functionality.

Yeah sure what ever...... (One minute of manual charging yields about 10 minutes work time)

This not efficient to even use.....and a six year old computer doesnt need manual charging....

well there will be a way to plug it into an AC plug as far as I remember...

I guess it would be interesting to see, a class of 20 kids, sitting in a wooden & clay classroom, and all of them cranking the charger for 5 minutes first, so they can use the notebook for 50 minutes.

but I really like this project. Been following it for a while...

cheers
