I concur with Negroponte and the analyst quoted at
that a real "$20 laptop" simply isn't feasible.
I'd be glad to be proved wrong but I think we're probably going to see
OLPC's "no cost connectivity program"
(http://blog.laptop.org/2009/01/07/refocusing-on-our-mission/) before a
$20 laptop shows up... ;-)
