Regarding the MIT Media Lab $100 Laptops:

Please note that the $100 laptops -- not yet in production -- will not be available for sale. The laptops will only be distributed to schools directly through large government initiatives.

Okay, now there's a bad idea. Why not sell the blamed things for $220 and reinvest the cash to start churning out free laptops? Was impressed that Jobs offered OS X for free for the things. Though I understand completely with why they declined -- and they should have, imo -- perhaps this means OS X on Intel is pretty snappy/speedy?
