Hardware, Embedded Systems Chip-maker Intel "should be ashamed of itself" for efforts to undermine the USD 100 laptop initiative, according to its founder Nicholas Negroponte. He accused Intel of selling its own cut-price laptop - the Classmate - below cost to drive him out of markets. Professor Negroponte, who aims to distribute millions of laptops to kids in developing countries, said Intel had hurt his mission "enormously".

If Negroponte is right, Intel will do a dumping, which is a crime in most countries.
I am brazilian too, and its sad to see childrens here that doenst have chairs to seat on a class, imagine how such children will use a laptop.
Anyway, I think its better to see our government spendeing 100 milion dollars in laptops instead os spending the same money on a public poll to decide if guns must be prohibited or not, and thats not a joke, unfortunatelly...
