Intel is apparently prepping a PC platform for less than $100 under the project name Shelton'08.
The Shelton'08 platform is supposed to first be used for sub $300 notebooks and later in 2008 to build $100 PCs. The new low-cost Intel platform would use 45nm Diamondville processors, with either Intel's 945GC or SiS 671 chipsets.
Asus and Shuttle have apparently already been informed about the Shelton'08 and could release products next year.

Low-cost hardware is the hottest trend right now. The $200 Linux PC Wal-mart offered earlier this month is already sold out. The Asus Eee is a hot seller as well.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
