This might be my next computer

A bare-bones computer that costs $25 (£16, or €19) is going to be on sale very soon. It uses a chip similar to the one in your mobile (well, that depends on whether you have a “smart” phone or not), and it’s based on Linux.

What really is going to grab attention is the price, especially when money is short. $25: that’s a very low price for something that could spark interest in computing and microelectronics amongst teenagers – just like the Arduino boards I used earlier this year. Maybe I’ll get one myself, but if anyone’s interested, here is the project’s site.
