New Laptop Cheaper than Used

How much would you pay for a new laptop with 1GB of flash memory, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, three USBs and built-in word processing? How about $98? That's what Chinese company HiVision hopes to charge for its new little beauty.

At this price, it could be a nice little toy or a machine just for travel. If you have enough of your files in the cloud, you could get all your work done cheaply. And if it gets lost or stolen, a new machine is only a Benjamin away.
