The company is to build so-called ?$100 laptops?, ultra low-end machines for distribution to children in developed countries, which will bring Quanta a lot of work and no earnings contribution in the foreseeable future.
The project is being developed by One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organisation that comprises the Media Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and corporates such as AMD, Google, Nortel and Red Hat.
