After looking for a laptop, I ran across this link regarding Wal-Mart releasing a $398 laptop on November 5.

The laptop will have the following components:

  • 2.00 GHz Mobile AMD Sempron™ Processor 3300+
  • 512MB 333MHz DDR (upgradable to 2GB)
  • ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M IGP (128MB)
  • 60GB 5400RPM Hard-Drive
  • 24X DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
  • 15.4” WXGA High-Definition BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800) Display
  • Integrated 56k modem, 100mb Network Card and 54g 802.11b/g Wireless Connectivity
  • 1 ExpressCard/54 Slot (Not PCMCIA)
  • 10.2"(L) x 14.1"(W) x 1.38"(min H) /1.77"(max H)
  • 6.4 lbs

Notice on the bottom: 1 per customer and there will be a total of 15 per store. Yikes!

These may not be the $100 laptops everyone's been talking about, but it sure comes close.
