AMD is partnering with HCL, an Indian technology firm, to sell personal computers at the same cost as cell phones. The computer would cost less than 10,000 rupees, or $220 USD. The hopes would be to market these computer to the nation of one billion where only 15 million have computers. That’s quite an untapped market.

The computers would ship with a 1.6 ghz processor, 15 inch monitor, and 40 gigs of hard drive space. The machines will be running a version of Linux.

Not a bad machine for $220.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
