The Government of Thailand has teamed up with Apple to launch a new project to sell Macs at below market price as part of the “People’s Computer” initiative. “Information and Communications Technology Minister Surapong Suebwonglee said yesterday that the computer would be a Macintosh G4 and it would be sold under the market price,” reports The Nation, an English language newspaper in Bangkok. “An IT source said the model would probably be the eMac G4, which goes for about Bt40,000 in stores. A briefing on the ‘Mac Up Your Life’ project is set for tomorrow, but Surapong said it would start in the middle of this month.” [Thanks to MacMinute reader Burt Blackburn for this news tip.]
