The Rs.500 Laptop

Well guys this was really a tough day for me, I messed up one of exam paper, got tensed a lot but now I feel like blogging and forgetting what happened today.

So I was just going through the forums where i saw this news about the laptop which is about to be released in India which costs just Rs.500 !

The UPA government has planned to release this "ULTRA CHEAP" laptop for youngsters who are pursuing B.Tech, and other studies.With elections being just round the corner the media is just of one voice saying

This is a good way to woo young voters
We can't complain though, since this is about to be released before the elections. But don't you think that a laptop for Rs.500 is too less ?  

We would give give Rs 2.5 lakh per institution for 10 Kbps connection and subsidise 25% of costs for private and state government colleges
                                         says the Government.

So let me tell you more about this, This low cost or should i say "ultra low cost" laptop is developed with the help of Indian Institute of Science (IIT), Madras and students of the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT)
The laptop can be charged with a low 2-watt power input and has a 2GB Ram capacity! ( I would really love to own one! )

So guys finally Dream come true after 3yrs of work on this project. Hats off to all the guys who worked on this project and making India proud.

I'm sorry to inform you all but the laptop was on display in Tirupati on Febuary 3rd ( well I had my exams you know ) so sorry for the late news !

From now on everyone will have their own computer oops sorry "Laptops"

India Rocks!
