$100 Laptop Prototype Unveiled

The One Laptop Per Child foundation unveiled the first working prototype of its $100 laptop at the Seven Countries Task Force Meeting on Tuesday. The device runs Fedora Linux and features a color screen, Wi-Fi, a 500MHz processor, and 1GB of flash memory.

The prototype unit, decked out in yellow and orange, has "horns" that flip up to function as Wi-Fi antennae and cover the USB and audio ports when not in use. The keyboard sports recessed buttons much like Apple's new MacBook, and a handle on the back is designed to make transport easier.
