OLPC becomes Children's Machine, increases price

Children Machine CM1

The One Laptop Per Child system, which will begin testing in Thailand soon, is rapidly solidifying - though at the customers' expense. Now christened the Children's Machine or CM1, it will be powered by a 400MHz AMD Geode processor and support mesh networking between nearby computers and support voice over IP. However, its technology will initially cost substantially more than MIT had planned: the first models will sell for $140, easily exceeding the $100 target set at the project's beginning. Prices are expected to drop once more units are in circulation and new technologies help lower manufacturing costs.
