The world's most affordable usable Laptop. It's ARM Powered, it runs Remix OS 2.0 on Allwinner A64 quad-core ARM Cortex-A53, with an ARM Mali400MP2 GPU, with a decent 11.6" 1366x768 display, a good keyboard and a basic mousepad (better mousepad option can be used), 1GB RAM and 8GB Flash, with 2GB RAM and more Flash options also possible. The price for this laptop can be as low as $79 to $99 if mass produced in huge volumes in the weeks/months to come, depending on the 1GB or 2GB RAM and depending on the installed Flash storage capacity (8GB, 16GB or 32GB), depending on the installed battery capacity/quality (battery life) and depending on the mousepad quality. There is also an about $20 higher priced 14.1" Allwinner A64 Remix OS 2.0 Laptop alternative available. The price totally depends on which distributor takes this platform and distribute it where and what profit margins they decide to take. If the demand is high, this Allwinner A64 Remix OS Laptop will be fully funded on crowdfunding platforms, then available in all retail stores and available as an impulse buy at supermarkets around the world. This, I think, is the big chance for Allwinner to make their A64 processor super popular. Also they have a nice open mold design 2-in-1 Laptop Tablet convertible design that should be bulk priced also below $99 with an 11.6" IPS touch screen, and also a decent keyboard and mousepad. The Remix OS team has already provided very stable support with many over-the-air updates on the 64bit Allwinner A64 platform as it's used in the very popular crowdfunded and mass produced Remix Mini which I previously filmed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNAHH3EpO_w
