Computer hardware keeps evolving and prices keep dropping. Of course, that's been true for decades and there appears to be no let-up of the rapid changes ahead. One newly-announced computer I am enthusiastic about is Dell's new "Project Ophelia" computer that will sell for about $100.
The new "Project Ophelia" computer is expected to be released in July to developers who may want to write apps for Ophelia. In August, it will be available via cable companies or telecom providers that may want to offer it with cable packages or data plans. Shortly after, it will be available to consumers on Dell's website. "Project Ophelia" computers will be tiny. In fact, the new computer will be about the size of today's flash drives. Obviously, it won't have a CD-ROM drive in it. Then again, it won't need one. Many computers being built these days do not have CD-ROM drives.
