Intel Intel's chairman chided plans by rival AMD and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to build a $100 laptop for the developing world. At a press conference in Sri Lanka on Friday, Craig Barrett said that potential computer users would scoff at the computer's lack of features. Barrett also said the device isn't worthy of being called a laptop. "I think a more realistic title should be 'the $100 gadget'," he mused. "The problem is that gadgets have not been successful."

Bad Move by Intel

This move by Intel is totally ignorant on their part. They should have just kept quiet or even offered to give them Xscale chips at reduced cost. It is no wonder that Intel's stock is down and AMD's is up.
