You know how excited people get when you talk about $100 laptops? Well, how about a $73 notebook computer, although I’m using the word computer generously here. Shenzhen, China based PC maker Sungworld is putting out a clamshell-style device with a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display and a $73 price tag.
Of course, for that price you shouldn’t expect much in the performance department, and to be brutally honest, I’d be surprised if this thing is half as useful as an iPhone. The Sungword mini-laptop has a 300MHz VIA VT8500 ARM-based CPU, 128MB of RAM, 1GB of storage space, and runs Windows CE. It does have WiFi, a QWERTY keyboard and an 1800mAh battery.
The laptop weighs just about 1.5 pounds. I’d be surprised if it shows up outsided of China anytime soon, but you never know.
