I was tipped off to this story about a $98 Laptop by Chad W. Smith. Chad is a blogger who I learned about through PPP and have been following his blog ever since. He makes some pretty interesting videos. Chad’s blog was the first one on which I read about this $98 laptop.

The Laptop is called the HiVision miniNote. It has a 7″ screen a new cheap MIPS based processor, WiFi, 1GB flash storage, it runs Linux, has 3 USB ports, Ethernet, SDHC card reader, audio in and out, voice-chat, skype, multi-tabbed Firefox browser support and Abiword for word processing. I watched a great video from Techvideoblog all about the notebook.

I think the miniNote is a great little one that I could use on a plane for writing blog posts and then publishing later. I could use it to listen to music or play movies that I may have stored on SD cards. AS SD cards allow more and more storage I could easily have 32GB of space on one SD card which would give me plenty of media space for a 3 hour flight. If HiVision would like to send me a test sample I’d take it all over and tell you all about it.
