LXer: The Laptop That Could Change the World

Published at LXer:

It has taken more than two years, but the One Laptop Per Child initiative has finally released its much-anticipated laptop: the OLPC XO-1. The XO-1 costs $200 each to donate, but for a limited time until Dec. 31, 2007 people can avail themselves of the "Give One, Get One" promotion to give a $399 donation ($200 of which is tax-deductible). This is certainly a different business model in this "me, me, me" holiday season: Instead of buying something for yourself, you buy technology for a child who needs it, with a fringe benefit of a gift laptop for your household.
