Samsung developing 'disposable' PC

Samsung is reportedly working on what could be the first disposable PC.

The computer is expected to incorporate Intel's upcoming system-on-a-chip Timna CPU, and would sell for under $200.

"At an under-$200 price point, the PC has no need to be upgraded - it will simply be replaced," a Samsung spokesman said.

In fact, upgrading might not be possible, since the unit reportedly will be completely sealed.

The company plans to ship the device in time for Christmas 2001.
