One Laptop Per Child Computer Becomes Children's Machine 1

The Children's Machine 1 (CM1), is the new monicker of the first machine from the One Laptop Per Child project spearheaded by MIT. It's no longer $100, as the price tag's climbed 40% to $140.

The specs are: 400MHz AMD Geode Processor, 128MB of RAM, 512MB of flash memory, SD card slot, microphone and speaker jacks, digital camera and 1200x900 resolution 8-inch LCD screen. These new features probably account for the $40 price bump, but is probably worth it considering the telecommunications features that a microphone/speakers/digital camera will be used for.
