Hi we are back this with this Y2 project which claim to create worlds cheapest laptop at just Rs. 4000 ($60).
This project is originated in Haryana, India. The specifications of the laptop is much similar to smart phones available at this price in the market.
Everything is already described in the picture above so I think I don’t need to tell you the same.
My comment on the hardware will be that It’s enough to fulfill the daily requirements of the average users like smoothly playback of HD movies, Document Editing, Internet surfing, Android Gaming, Security Penetrating, ETC.
Why the Project Started?
The main goal of the project is to increase the I.T literacy in India by making a affordable computer that even poor people can use. The laptop is a knowledge center in itself with hundreds of E-Books present on it in compressed form from NCERT School books to books on computer programing (PHP, JAVA, C, C++, C#, JS, HTML, CSS, Python, ETC). Imagine when power of coding come in the hands of poor. This will create new and job opportunities for poor, Makes the country I.T foundation strong. What if some kids becomes famous blogger or YouTube stars or even start their own IT company like Google or Microsoft.
Is it possible to make a laptop at Rs.4k or Is it an another fraud?
It is true that it is not possible to make a laptop at Rs.4k with that specifications and current hardware available in the market. It is self claimed by the project on its website. But at the same time they have given its solution, They said,” We are actively researching to design a hardware with less components and great power. We have calculated the cost of our prototype and it is far beyond Rs.4k. Next day we came up with a plan and decreased the cost by Rs.1k. and we think we will soon able to make the cost nearly Rs.4k. As written on our website we want contributors to the project, if you think you can help in anyway then just mail us and we will be back to you. AS our project is made publicly it gone viral. After few minutes we start getting comments like it’s an another fraud company like Freedom2*1 but believe me its not a fraud, we are not even asking for any payment. what we all want from you is to fill a form that shows you support us. Thank You”.
