I am just back from their display exhibition. Eee PC [900 Mhz, 512MB, 4GB] is for Rs. 20,400 ($334) and Classmate PC [900MHz, 512MB, 40GB] is for Rs. 22,000 ($360). The final price is expected to be lower than this when they are actually given to students. An installment period of 2, 3 and 5 years is also promised. Open University is also letting the students choose HP Compaq 6720s or Acer Aspire along with the two tablet-PC’s. View details here.
