by on17 September 2007

Up to $188 each


The nonprofit group that wants to build low-cost computers for poor  children has raised the laptops' price.

The One Laptop per Child Foundation's XO laptop wanted to sell its PCs for about $100 but now says that the best it can manage is $188.

The laptop is still being called the "$100 laptop" by foundation's  founder, Nicholas Negroponte, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology  researcher and the brother of U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte.

The XO laptop uses a microprocessor from AMD and software from Red Hat.
