Intel unveils low-cost PC

US semiconductor giant Intel unveiled a new mobile personal computer designed to provide affordable, collaborative learning environments for teachers and young students, an Associated Press report said.

The report said the PC, codenamed "Eduwise," would feature built-in wireless and would be able to run Microsoft's Windows or Linux operating systems, It would cost around $400.

The flip-open Eduwise computer included a handle, light blue accents and snaps shut like a purse. Special software would allow students in a classroom to view presentations, take tests and interact individually with their teachers using a built-in wireless connection, the report said.

The cheaper PCs formed part of a $1-billion investment by Intel over the next five years to promote the use of computers in schools, cafés and other public spots in developing countries, Intel said, according to the report.
