    May be cheap but if it has horrible specs it's useless.

    It's aimed at students, remember?
    It if can do the basic tasks of web browsing, basic graphic design and text editing it will be incredibly valuable to students at that price.

    So what do you thinks guys? Do you like the world's cheapest computer? I think it looks nice and it could be aimed a person who doesn't have money and also aimed at students.

    Hell, if it's got an English mode and decent specs I might just import it.

    The Chinese knockoffs have gotten decent enough reviews and they go from $100-$200.

    Personally though if I was a student I'd rather have a netbook or other type of laptop. Tablets are cool and nice devices but a netbook is better suited for the needs of a student, in my opinion.

    I would love to dig around and see what kind of Linux fun is going on in that thing. At $35 i can't imagine it not becoming huge.
