The Times of India says HCL Info launches PC for Rs 9,990
This is the usual lie computer companies resort to. The landing price is not sub 10k. A small asterisk will lead you to fine print that says you are expected to caugh up another Rs. 1,250 for various other services including the first year maintenance - compulsorily. So it is over Rs. 11,000.
"The PC has 1 GHz processor from Taiwan" says the news. So I suppose that is Via Technologies Chip. Nothing wrong with that. It works quite okay. I have one (lower than 1 GHz) and it has been working quite well under Windows 98. I found Linux struggling, particularly with the built-in sound. But that should have been resolved by now.
With poor power supply, as of now, we require an UPS as well to go along with this. That would cost another Rs. 2,000+. So in all, we would end up paying Rs. 14,000 for the computing machine system.
There is more work to be done in this area.
