'$100 laptop' production begins

Filed under

Five years after the concept was first proposed, the so-called $100 laptop is poised to go into mass production.

Hardware suppliers have been given the green light to ramp-up production of all of the components needed to build millions of the low-cost machines.

The first machines should be ready to put into the hands of children in developing countries in October 2007.
