It's not available yet, and if it's anything like version 1.0, it may be hard to get one's hands on in the U.S., but the $100 laptop version 2.0 (from the One Laptop Per Child project) is almost exactly the computer that I've been waiting for.

Take note Apple! If you made this, I would buy it tomorrow. Tomorrow.

And this may be more of a Snarkmarket topic, but how interesting that this sort of innovation, particularly in form and design, is taking placed based on the demands of anticipated third-world deployment? Even considering the ways in which Apple does (and doesn't) push the design envelope, are we stuck with our more traditional laptops because of the conservatism of the market?
