    This is awesome. Id get it for my wife and my mother because all they play are simple easy games and surf the net. In the end, 2 others get one. I love it. Karma man, its great!

    Well one of the things about this that people are forgetting is that in many 3rd world countries they dont have books and such for school. It would actually be cheaper for them to get these laptops and just have the students look at online textbooks than to buy all the text books for the students. As for a modern market such as for the US or something, this laptop is a lot more durable than something like a PSP plus has a slightly larger screen and can be powered by crank. Its just a very good cheap laptop solution for a child regardless of country.

    To surf the internet anywhere and not worry about battery life because you can just wind it up is amazing.

    Definately on the list of gadgets to watch out for

    I wonder if you can set it to boot from a usb drive. It'd be a great internet/office machine then.
