HCL MiLeap is new range of low cost laptop computers and tablet PCs in India that will definitely find lot of appeal among school and college students.
The HCL Mileap laptops (X Series) costs around INR 14k with a 7″ LCD screen and weigh around a kg. Professional can go for the HCL Mileap tablet (Y series) that costs around INR 30k and has a swivel screen.
To reduce the overall cost, these HCL laptops have an Intel Celeron processor and are pre-loaded with Linux / Free DOS instead of regular XP or that latest Windows Vista OS.
Like the “One Laptop Per Child”, these inexpensive HCL Mileap laptops are dust-proof and can withstand shocks like a free-fall from your desk.
The HCL notebooks will be available this January 26.
