Here is the preview of the $100 laptop by mit. Apart from the Slick design, there are a few really useful features. The hand-crank generator can charge up the laptop and the carrying strap is the adaptor & cord!

At the same time, Gates envisions the Tablet PCs as the future. He hopes that the costs come down and in reality replace the student notepads! [from this channel9 video]
