Bill Gates: A better $100 laptop?

Memeorandum has a thread on Bill Gates’ comments about MIT’s $100 laptop project. He suggests that something on par with a UMPC is better. Actually I agree, from a technology standpoint. Of course, the big problem is price. And then there’s the issue of power and connectivity.

Wouldn’t it be cool if BIll Gates, Intel, and others could organize a million plus UMPCs to be made available to schoolchildren as a small step? With that kind of volume, they may be able to force the price down enough to make it feasible.

I’d donate the MathPractice SkillPak to the bundle, if it would help.
