I heard Apple offered to supply OS X for free to a $100-laptop initiative which eventually chose Linux. These are the first details I've heard of it, though.
It sounds good to me. REALLY good. And long overdue. It's weak by today's standards, but it's still a few hundred times more powerful than the first computer my family owned and I owe just about everything I know today to that computer!
The case design is interesting. I never thought I'd see a laptop that you could charge with a crank, but hey, if it works it works.
