    This will be useful and is worth for the price they have fixed. But it will be a slower one because it has only 366 mhz processor while the smartrinods have 1.2 ghz processors

      Not yet, Aakash Table PCs are initially meant for students. It may take some more time to get it public for all users.

      You need to purchase it through booking online. The Government is providing it for selective educational institutions only. It is yet to come to open market in a big way.

    It is a good initiative. But the PC configuration should be more rich within the reasonable cost, atleast for students.
