Namibia has warned against possible adverse environmental consequences amidst the hype following the launch of the "100$ Laptop", an ambitious project hoped to open education communication to children all over the world.

While everybody is overwhelmed by the US$100 laptop, Namibia's Information Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has cautioned that the issue of environmental consequences might have been overlooked.

"How do we take care of disposing these laptops when they have reached their living age? What do we do with them (laptops) when they are no longer useful," asked Ndaitwah.
