Only $176

 



After five years planning the One Laptop Per Child project is starting production.

According to the BBC, hardware suppliers have been given the green light to ramp-up production of all of the components needed to build millions of the low-cost machines.

The OLPC project has said that it needed three million orders to make production viable and not it seems that the first machines will be available by October 2007.

Walter Bender, head of software development at One Laptop per Child (OLPC), told the BBC that there was still some software to write.

The XO will be produced in Taiwan by Quanta and will bring together 800 parts from multiple suppliers such as chip-maker AMD, which supplies the low-power processor at the heart of the machine.

It will cost $176, well above the project of $100.
