Think that $130 NPX-9000 Firefox tablet or the OLPC $75 touch screen laptop are as cheap as it gets? Think again. The brains at MIT are sure of themselves that they can create a computer for a mere $12. With a price tag like that, it’d only take a few hours of panhandling outside of a McDonalds to accumulate the money for your brand new PC. No details on the rig’s component parts except for it starting out as an old Apple II. How or when it’ll become a twelve dollar functioning computer is beyond me.
