Laptops are all around us, everybody owns a rolling mobile laptop stand. Laptops under 100 have replaced desktop computers in almost every field where computers are used. Everybody could use a laptop be it to watch movies, create a presentation or just browse the internet. With the advent of Web 2.0 the need of an affordable computer to stay in touch has only increased.

A laptop under 100  is compact, lightweight and affordable too. But not all of these laptops are affordable. Some laptops are steeply priced while some do not cost as much. However it is a real challenge to find a laptop that would cost less than $ 100. Here are a couple of laptops that cost less than $ 100.

• The Mininote Alpha 400 – the mininote is manufactured by a Chinese company and costs close to a $ 100. For a laptop under 100 bucks what you get is fairly reasonable.
It has 400Mhz 32 bit CPU, Linux 2.4 OS and 128 MB of internal memory. It also features a 7 inch digital screen with a resolution of 800 X 480.It comes with 1GB flash storage, Ethernet and wireless adaptor built-in

• Dell latitude D600 – You could get second hand dell latitude D600 for something close to 100 bucks. The dell latitude has a fairly good processor in the form of an Intel Pentium M 1.6 GHz with 512 Mb of internal memory. The internal memory can be upgraded to up to 2 GB. It also has a small 30 GB Hard drive which is much better than the mininote’s flash storage. It has a 14 inch screen with built in wireless adaptor. It has a battery life of up to 2 hours and an ATI Mobility Radeon card too.

• XO laptop – You could also consider purchasing the XO laptop. This laptop was built for the one laptop per child foundation to provide affordable computers to children around the world. The laptop under 100  was never meant for commercial production and sale however under the give one get one program many users could buy one for $ 300 and on their behalf another laptop was donated to a child somewhere around the world. But this was a charity drive. You could get your hands on one of these if you search EBay. It has a 433MHz AMD processor, 7.5 inch reflective LCD screen, 256 Mb memory and wireless networking.

You could also choose to buy second hand laptops or refurbished laptops. The refurbished laptop offered by manufacturers themselves also comes along with a warranty.
