Finally a good news after series of bad ones about AMD. The company will be able to get its One laptop per child at under $100 and the sources close to company claim that AMD plans to earn a lot of money about it.
The magic word is the volume number of orders as the emerging third world countries such as many places in Africa and Middle east or in the eastern parts of Europe might order hundreds of thousands of these notebooks.
Even if you earn $2 per notebook if you sell 300.000 to any government you will earn some nice money. AMD hopes to sell millions of these devices. At the end of the day most of us lives in capitalism and the company such as AMD desperately needs cash so why not get it from the third world countries.
The good thing is that this business project will actually make some lives better.
