DIY Week: Pt 2.5: AMD's Third World PC

It's not strictly music, but Ryan at Engadget reports on AMD's new Personal Internet Communicator. It's a low-cost, self-contained PC designed for the Third World. You can certainly argue that $185 for a 366mhz PC with 10gb hard disk and 128mb ram isn't really cheap (You can pick up a better spec machine for £40 on Ebay), but I love the product design - and the idea that every teenager in every favela in Brazil is about to get themselves a cracked copy of Reason and start making music.
