It Can't Be... It Is... The £7 Laptop!
Boffins in India are on the brink of launching the £7 laptop, as they aim to bridge the gap between those who have a £7 laptop and everyone else.
The new machine will knock the $100 lime green XO machine into a cocked hat and probably get into the Guinness Book Of Records at the same time. Double bubble, as we expect they say in the laptop industry.
So how the hell is it so cheap? Here’s some possible explanations?
- It doesn’t have any bits on the inside (or ‘computering stuff’ as they say in the laptop industry).
- It’s not an actual laptop – just a rudimentary drawing of one.
- It’s invisible.
- It has a battery life of 11 minutes and takes four days to carry out a full recharge.
- It carries and spreads a highly-deadly strain of cyber-malaria.
We don’t care - if it does sums and you can get a clear picture of Joan off of Mad Men on its screen, it’s a bloody laptop and we’ll have a dozen of them thanks.
