Jointech's $99 JL7100 laptop

July 28, 2008 While the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative has been working towards a $100 laptop since 2005, they're still $88 above their target. Now Hong Kong-based Jointech has thrown its hat into the ring with the $99 JL7100.

As one might expect given the price tag, the JL7100 is far from a fully-featured laptop. While the 7-inch, 800x480-pixel display and three USB ports stand up relatively well to other subnotebooks, there's only 64MB of RAM, and 64MB of storage on board - meaning modern operating systems (including Windows XP) are out of the question.

Jointech JL7100 Features

  • 7-inch display capable of 800x480 resolution
  • Windows CE 5.0
  • 64MB internal storage
  • 64MB RAM
  • VGA out
  • 3x USB ports
