HCL's already brought some low-cost desktops to India, and it looks set to do the same for laptops as well, with the company now taking the wraps off two budget-priced models made "with a little help from Intel." As you can see above, one of those, the MiLeap X, is more than a little familiar-looking, although HCL seems to be doing its best to distant itself from the Classmate PC brand, and claims that the laptop has been "designed exclusively for India." Suffering from no such confusion is the slightly higher-end and more UMPC-like MiLeap Y model, which boasts the same 7-inch screen and built-in WiFi, but adds an 80GB hard drive, Bluetooth, and Vista Home Premium in place of the MiLeap X's Linux OS, among other features. No word on a release date for either just yet, but the MiLeap X will apparently be available starting at Rs 13,990 (or about $350), while the MiLeap Y will start at under Rs 30,000 (or roughly $760).
