Cheapest netbook in the world

Years ago, when the OLPC was first launched it had the goal of producing a laptop that could be sold for about $100 around the world. The idea was to provide a notebook for children in developing nations to use for education. The OLPC failed to provide a notebook anywhere near the cost it aimed for.
