    Novena Open Source Laptop

    I bet Richard Stallman would love this!

    Source: Crowd Supply (via Bit-tech)

    The Novena laptop is nearly a reality, with creator 'Bunnie' Huang looking for $250,000 from crowd-funding site Crowd Supply to build the first models.
    The bare board, which includes a 1.2GHz quad-core Freescale ARM processor and 4GB of RAM, is priced at $500; $1,195 install it into a case with a 1920×1080 IPS display - a downgrade from the 2560×1700 resolution Huang was testing back in January; $1,195, meanwhile, gets backers the promise of a laptop variant with built-in battery and 240GB SSD - although, oddly, no keyboard. A final $5,000 pledge level - which nobody has yet exercised - offers an 'Heirloom' edition, which boasts a hand-crafted wood and aluminium case. UK pricing for each level, then, is around £300, £718, £1,199 and £3,011 respectively, excluding shipping and taxes.
