Chip-maker Intel "should be ashamed of itself" for efforts to undermine the $100 laptop initiative, according to its founder Nicholas Negroponte.
He accused Intel of selling its own cut-price laptop - the Classmate - below cost to drive him out of markets.
Professor Negroponte, who aims to distribute millions of laptops to kids in developing countries, said Intel had hurt his mission "enormously".
Speaking to US broadcaster CBS, Intel's chairman denied the claims.
"We're not trying to drive him out of business," said Craig Barrett. "We're trying to bring capability to young people."
I think the guy has a point, Intel are trying to drive him out and are doing it solely in the interest of profit. Hopefully they will see sense sooner or later. BBC News Report
