    £99 is the retail price of the laptop, so the manufacturing goes around £65.

    Is it possible to do this, using the available hardware? (Estimate with OEM cost).

    Battery and Software cost is excluded.

    Basically i'm thinking to get my own version of OLPC projet, but less lame and make a profit from it.(Linux based)

    Any suggestions of the configuration :)

    The OLPC does not yet cost $100 dollars, it will only go down in price when more people buy into it. It is really struggling to get off the ground. Right now I think they are somewhere in the neighborhood of 300-500 dollars.
