Public can purchase $100 laptop – Neowin.net

The backers of the One Laptop Per Child project plan to release the machine on general sale next year.
This is great news, the idea was to create a laptop that could be given en masse to children in developing countries to help them with their education. The idea now is that the public at large will be able to purchase them, but only if they buy 2, one of which goes to the charity arm for a child. Everyone wins, $200 is a crazy price for a laptop, and these have been beautifully designed. I could potentially myself see them becoming iconic pieces of equipment. I certainly hope so.
