Default Intel scoffs at '$100 laptop'

Intel's Craig Barret has recently criticized the $100 "laptop" concept geared towards third-world countries. Mr. Barrett feels that the device is more gadget than laptop and should be treated as such:

"Mr Negroponte has called it a $100 laptop - I think a more realistic title should be 'the $100 gadget'," Craig Barrett, chairman of the world's largest chip maker, told a news conference in Sri Lanka.


"The problem is that gadgets have not been successful."
