Perhaps you have a lot of friends.
The Impulse NPX-9000 laptop has a 7-inch screen and comes with the Linux OS. It has a 400MHz processor, 128M bytes of RAM, 1G byte of flash storage and an optional wireless networking dongle. It includes office productivity software, a Web browser and multimedia software. It runs the Linux operating system, not Microsoft Windows.
It sounds a lot like the Asus EEE that I described recently in a Plus Edition article. I purchased one of the ASUS EEE $399 laptops recently and love it. A cheaper model with less memory and no video camera is available for $299. I now use it as my primary laptop when traveling. It is the only laptop that I carry unless I am giving presentations. It slips in an overcoat pocket and weighs two pounds so it is easy to pack and carry.
The new $130 Impulse NPX-9000 laptop has almost the same specifications and is less than half the price, if you purchase 100 of them. However, the Impulse NPX-9000 does have less memory and its wireless connectivity is an extra-cost option. At this price, the laptop costs less than some software packages.
The Impulse NPX-9000 laptop should be able to run GRAMPS, a full-featured, free genealogy program for Linux. I don't know if anyone has tried that yet, however.
The $129 laptop is available on Alibaba.com through the online store of Taiwanese company Carapelli Ltd. You can read more at http://www.alibaba.com/product-tp/101509462/World_s_Cheapest_Laptop.html.
Hmmm, anyone want to try for a "group buy?"
