these laptops, after the test runs, and if found to be durable, usable and at par with the leading brands must be considered by the governments of different countries for their computer requirements and e-learning initiatives.

The present estimates show that the initial price will be around $175 per laptop. After a certain level in sales volume has been breached, the costs are estimated to go down and the goal of $100/laptop will probably become a reality.
