Intel President Paul Otellini showed off a prototype of a notebook for schools that the company expects to offer for US$400 at the start of next year.
The laptop will be offered through an educational initiative aimed at providing a laptop for all schoolchildren, Otellini said. The laptop will be offered to the Brazilian government, along with wireless broadband access and educational software, according to Oscar Clarke, president of Intel Brazil.
The prototype computer was shown to journalists. It has the size and format of a notebook computer and will be manufactured by Intel partners.
