BBC NEWS | Technology | '$100 laptop' unveils new design

A $75 dual-screen Windows-based (maybe the Windows option would raise the price to, say, $100 :)...) ebook reader/tablet/laptop?  

"This laptop comes from a different point of view." he said.

The new version loses the green rubbery keyboard, sporting instead a single square display hinged at its centre.

This allows the device to be split into two touch screens that can either mimic a laptop with keyboard or the pages of a book.

"Over the last couple of years we've learned the book experience is key," he said.

The idea is for several children to use the device at once, combining the functions of a laptop, electronic book and electronic board.

That would be pretty cool.  But in the meantime, who is going to pay ~$200 for one of these?
