MIT Picks Maker of $100 Laptop – Yahoo! News
Taiwan’s Quanta, the world’s largest maker of notebook computers, will manufacture an ultra-low-cost laptop developed by Nicholas Negroponte, the chairman of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Media Lab.
The article doesn’t mention that while Quanta is a Taiwaneese company, they’ve recently moved their “laptop production to mainland China”:http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB111825761813954442-d4x_lQnm5A2GOO1NR6Wi_DBAyys_20050709.html?mod=blogs, which, incidentally, is likely a major customer for the $100 laptop.

Update 7/4/2007: It was funny for a while but all these comments from people who seem to think I’m selling cheap laptops is getting really old. I’m turning off comments.
