100 USD laptop

Rediff hardsells the 100 USD white elephant laptop.

Various commentators have told time and again what India needs is not a 100 USD laptop, but our requirements are more basic - like schools and electricity. What a laptop will do in a place with no school or electricity is imaginable.

Well, that doesn't stop someone from trying and others from falling in a trap.

Placing the cart before the horse eh !

I would assume that the end that people envisage is the same : Develoopment ( & throw in some profits / mileage etc somewhere...)

The means, is where we are a little in a quandry.

Cant we work that through ?!?
