Menq International Ltd EasyPC E760 $89 Laptop

Posted by Charbax on 12th September 2008

This past few days, my video of the HiVision miniNote has been seen by over 100 thousand people thanks to links from Slashdot, Gizmodo and Digg. But at IFA 2008, I actually saw a Laptop by Menq International Ltd called the EasyPC E760 that was advertised as being even cheaper at only $89 per laptop. It runs on a Samsung ARM processor, has a 7″ 480×272 resolution screen and runs Windows CE with some customized browser, word processing, Skype and media player.

$98 Linux Laptop – The HiVision miniNote

Posted by Charbax on 2nd September 2008

HiVision makes the worlds cheapest Linux laptop at $98 using a new cheaper MIPS based processor (perhaps the Longsoon or the Ingenic), WiFi, 1GB flash storage, it runs Linux, has 3 USB ports, Ethernet, SDHC card reader, audio in and out, voice-chat, skype, multi-tabbed Firefox browser support and Abiword for word processing. Automatic and secure online software updates. Their current model is running a smooth and pretty snappy Linux user interface. In this video, I got to borrow a review sample of the laptop overnight, and I try to show you all the browser and other software interfaces in this extended video review of this cheap MIPS based laptop. Embedded is the way that I hope that most cheap laptops are going to be based on in the near future, Google will hopefully make a great Chrome browser for this kind of Laptop and hopefully that OLPC soon will announce that they will work to improve Embedded Linux based laptops in the upcoming XO-1.5 and XO-2 designs.
