Carapelli NPX 9000 – World’s Cheapest Laptop

Posted on Aug 1 2008 - 11:34pm by Richard Sharp

Carapelli Inspire NPX 9000Carapelli probably isn’t the first name to trip off the tongue when talking about netbooks or laptops, but it may become more popular following the announcement that they are releasing the world’s most inexpensive notebook computer that will cost just £65. The laptop, that is called the Impulse NPX-9000, obviously doesn’t have the greatest specifications but bearing in mind you could afford one on a week’s wages if you had two paper rounds, you can’t really argue.

The 400MHz processor isn’t going to break any records, at least not in a good way, and it also features a jaw dropping 128MB RAM and 1GB of flash storage. In order to keep costs down as far as possible, the Impulse NPX-9000 will run the Linux operating system and will presumably offer open source office software (such as Open Office).

It does, however, include an SD card slot, a VGA port, and three USB ports for connectivity. It also has a mini USB port and a USB based LAN Connection. Alternatively, you can choose the optional WiFi dongle to go wireless.

OK, so the spec really is pretty poor, but the Carapelli machine is less expensive than most prepaid mobile phones so you’re not really in a position to criticize it for having a poor processor.
