The "One Laptop Per Child" (OLPC) initiative planned to give notebooks computers to children at a $100 price tag, but that was apparently a little bit too cheap.
Intel is gearing up for its next-generation micro-processors. And we hear that Intel may be much closer to be releasing its 45 nm processors, code-named "Penryn", to production than we previously thought: Expect reviews and benchmarks of Penryn to surface early in Q3 of this year. Extra: Slideshow
