Is 100 $ Laptop actually required

HCL already has a Laptop of 14,000 Rs, and trends show that with in two years a normal configuration Laptop with full functionality may be available for $ 100. So is there really a need for a $100 Laptop per student programmes being aspired by many companies, which may not even offer full functionality.

The market dynamics looks like the prices are getting skimmed. Maybe then the companies like Intel and Microsoft could continue their good work by reducing the price target to a $50 Laptop by the end of next two years which could be used to spread computer literacy in the third world and developing countries.
