The world's cheapest laptop, which sells for less than £50, has been launched by a company in China.
China OEM Menq has built the EasyPC using an ARM-based processor manufactured by Samsung.
Screen-size is seven inches. The PC supports Wi-Fi, Ethernet Lan and Skype, and has two USB ports. There is 128Mbytes of Ram, 2Gbytes SSD storage and a 2,000mAh battery. An SD card slot can be used to add 32Gbytes of flash storage.
The EasyPC runs Windows CE but it is claimed that it can also run Google's Android. So it could be considered a laptop, a smartbook, a netbook or an ultra-mini PC.
