The self-proclaimed smallest and cheapest laptop in the world, Carapelli's Impulse NPX-9000 is now on sale in the Middle East.

Taiwanese hardware vendor Carapelli says that the Impulse NPX-9000 is both the smallest laptop in the world, and the cheapest, costing just $129 (AED 473) for bulk orders of 100 units or more.

In comparison, the cheapest commercially available small, cheap notebook the Asus EeePC 700 series costs anywhere from $200-400, while Intel's Classmate and the OLPC XO notebook, only available for governments and education,  costs between $250 and $400, and around $180 respectively.

With a 7 inch screen, the Impulse NPX-9000 matches the smallest Asus EeePC, and comes with a 400MHz processor, 128MB RAM and 1GB of flash storage, running a customized version of Linux.

A Windows XP version of the machine, which should cost under $200, is planned for the future.

Samer Batter, editor of Windows Arabic is among the first to test out the machine - you can read his verdict here.
