100 Yen Laptops
So why do you see Laptops that cost only 100 yen when out n about shopping in Tokyo?
Well there is obviously a catch. Here you see a few laptops - each costing 100 yen. The catch is that you need to take out a contract for an internet connection at the same time. You end up paying between 2,000 yen and 6,000 yen for the internet connection and must take out a contract for two years. So you end up paying for the computer over time.
100 yen laptops have been popular among students who need a computer and internet connection anyway.
