    CherryPal have launched their new $99 laptop. They themselves describe the laptop as "small, slow, sufficient". The lap top utilises open source software and is suited to browsing the Internet. Africa is the primary target market for this $99 Lap Top. You can view the lap top here on the Chrrypal online store.

    It's great to see that technology and web access is being made accessible to a market that up to now could not have afforded a PC or an Internet connection.

    This sounds good for $99 however it will no doubt be quite poor compared to more expensive laptops.

    I can't have a proper look though because their site is down.

    It's also down for me at the moment. Maybe they got too much publicity for their new offer today and their server can't handle the extra traffic.

    For anybody that really just uses their computer to read their email and not much more, that's a perfect buy! I know plenty of older folks that do little more than that with their pc's. :)

    Well, it has almost everything as a Normal laptop has. The low price is confusing though.

    Wow
    A $99 laptop?
    that is pretty cheap for such laptops.
    I see that the laptop memory & spaces are not that big.

    But it is a good sale for $99, as of course we can't expect much.
    Good share!

    It's much more cheaper than a TV or mobile or a desktop computer which we buy here.

    It's nothing special but for $99 it's good enough.

    It's nice of those people to do such a thing to help out the people in need.

    I've heard about this project two years ago. Finally they've launched their product? I believe not only Africa, other countries too would need this. Very cheap product of laptop by the way.
