Last week Saturday, met Mr. Mohamed Kasim, from IIT Bombay.
He demonstrated me a tiny, lightweight, cute laptop.
It is a 11.6″ laptop, based on an atom quad core processor. It has 4GB
RAM, 32 GB NAND flash, an expansion slot through which one can attach
an optional 2.5″ HDD/SDD, and most importantly, 10 hours of time,
thanks to a 10,000 mAh battery. It has two USB ports, a mini HDMI port
and a microSD card slot. It also has wifi and bluetooth.
This laptop comes with Debian Linux operating system and a lot of
useful software, such as LibreOffice, LaTeX, Scilab, OpenModelica,
Inkscape, GIMP, Blender, OpenFOAM, eSim, Synfig Studio, and various
editors and browsers.
The cost is 10,000 INR.
I checked for its performance. Opened LibreOffice, Eclipse, Gimp,
Blender and explored their basic operations. The performance was
smooth. Cant see any lagging or heating.
Currently, the laptop is available Institutes and organizations for
bulk orders. The service and support support centers are being setup
across the country.
It is really lightweight. It is price is too low for its performance.
You will love to buy immediately if you see it and experience it. The
same happened to me.
