BBC NEWS (A laughable name, isn’t it? BBC News? Anyway…)

They posted a story today about someone who is promoting the idea of selling stripped down laptops… new, as sub-$100 units. This is suppsoed to be so great as an educational tool and so on.

Here’s a news flash you may not have heard of BBC… I have three laptops… each of which are of the standards proposed. I write my long form stuff on one of ’em. And each cost less than $100. One, in fact cost me $20.

They’re commonly known as ‘Used”. And to boot, they’re actually more powerful than what’s being proposed.

Forgive me if I fail to see anything newsworthy here.
