Intel Chairman Knocks Supercheap Laptop
from the no,-he's-not-biased dept
Intel chairman Craig Barrett says the $100 laptop — which uses an AMD processor — is bunk, because it’s a “gadget” as opposed to the cheap “laptops” Intel’s chips are going into. While we’re also skeptical of the idea, but it’s not because the people at which the machines are aimed want more expensive and powerful computers, but rather that it’s likely they’ve got more pressing needs to fulfill with $100, assuming they have even that. Is Barrett just trying to say the world’s poor want Intel inside?
