India unveils $10 laptop

India’s new 500-rupee ($10) laptop, the world’s cheapest computer, will be the centerpiece of an e-learning program to link 18,000 colleges and 400 universities.  “A number of publishers have reportedly agreed to upload portions of their textbooks on to the system,” reports The Guardian.

Will the computer really cost only $10? So far, the cheapest computers cost $200.
