Low-priced laptop for Bangladesh August 11, 2008

The international organisations and individuals were thinking for low-priced loptop popularly known as 100 dollar laptop for developing nations particularly Africa. But this Green laptop when marketed, Bangladesh was not in the list. Intel in parallel also marketed specially designed low-priced laptop for students of USA.

The ordinary citizen also marked a news where he sees that India is also marketing low priced laptop for its young learners in its country. He felt a little frustrated for his own country-Bangladeh. Is there any way out for Bangladesh to get any low-priced computers and laptop which its citizen could afford? He also came accross a site where he sees that computers from developed countries are refurbished and recycled in developed countries. But the beneficieries are the African countries.

His frustation has started to erase when he has come accross the news that a USA-based international organisation of Bangladeshi computer experts ‘Prolog’ has started their project in Bangladesh to produce low-priced computers. In addition, they will provide other ICT related services in Bangladesh.

Microchip expert and chaiman and CEO of Prologe Incorporation Sayesthapir Chowdhury in a teleconference said that when he last came to Bangladesh he felt good seeing Bangladesh is showing interest in application of information technology including internet in education system. But he didn’t see any plan to spread it throughout the country. He thought it is necessary to provide computers at affordable prices to all to achieve the goal.

After coming back to USA, he talked with Intel Corporation. They agreed to supply processor and other accessories of computer at special prices for Bangladesh. Prolog wants to provide all ICT services for students for academic purposes. To do this they are trying to bring down the price of the computers within the capacity of common man.
He said that without improvement in ICT, no development will be possible in Bangladesh. To equip all the students with computer by the year 2020 in Bangladesh, they have taken up a program by the name Vision-2020.To materialise the project, many Bangladeshi experts working in INTEL and other ICT organisations came forward to support the Vision 2020.
Prolog will come initially with 3 models in Bangladesh market-‘Affortib’ for students and ‘Standard’ and ‘Performance’ for professionals and others. Processor DUO will be used in ‘Affortib’. The price will be aproximately 35000/-. But the ordianary citizen thinks that the price seems to be higher than the purchasing capacity of common Bangladeshi people. It is not important how latest the processor is, the average processor with lesser price will serve the people better.

Prolog is also thinking to establish an assembling plant in Bangladesh soon and will deliver computers to the south asian market. It will reduce the price of the computer more. In addition of marketing computers in Bangladesh , Prolog will also support software, networking and telecenters. [Source: Prothom Alo; 10th August 2008]

We wish success of Prolog in Bangladesh.

when 100$ laptop will be available in bangladesh

2. bdoza - August 16, 2008

It is not sure when $100 dollar laptop will be available in Bangaldesh. The actual price of the laptop may be double. Individual Government will have to buy them and then will have to distribute to the children. So far more than 50 countries contacted the project. I am not sure whether Bangaldesh has taken any initiative in this regard.

To know more about the project, please click http://laptop.org/

bdoza - August 29, 2009

Laptop in installments are available from different IT shops. Search your reachable areas. Different banks are also giving loans for laptop, you will have to pay back the loan in installments. You can directly contact with the bank or search an IT fair for such an offer from the banks. Singer Company also sell Laptp in installments.

Wish you good luck!

27. Md. Rakibuzzaman Shuvro - January 7, 2010

Hi I am Shuvro,
We need low price laptop in Bangladesh because there are many people who do not have the ability to buy a high price laptop or computer. there are also many students whose are very much interest to use a computer but they can not effort. only because of high price. I am very sorry to inform you that Bangladesh Government declarer that they will make a digitalized country like other counties!!!!!

But how it is possible?
I think if we the Bangladeshi citizen will get a low price Laptop or computer and high speed Internet service then we can know about the world and the other things and this is the right way to make digitalized Bangladesh.

TO MAKE A DIGITALIZED COUNTRY, GOVT. SHOULD TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TO IMPORT LOW PRICE COMPUTER FOR BANGLADESHI STUDENTS ………………………………

bdoza - January 9, 2010

or Government should arrange production of low-priced laptop and computer in the country.

28. Md. Rakibuzzaman Shuvro - January 9, 2010

Yes U are right bdoza …………

we r posting our opinion here, but what about our govt. r they looking !!! what is the demand of his country peoples……..????

A single word can not change a country view, that we will make Bangladesh as a Digital Bangladesh………….

We the people are waiting for a developed country…………………..

29. Md. Rakibuzzaman Shuvro - January 9, 2010

Yes it is also true that we the people can change our country but i think we need govt. and other people help ……….. Who are on the top of the county but the result is “zero”, no one is trying to change his or her country they are always busy to make their own position and development…………………………….

It is very sad………
