This is so cool. per the New York Times
The amazing One Laptop per Child is about to hit the market in November. One Laptop Per Child (laptop.org) has developed a very low-cost, high-potential, extremely rugged computer for the two billion educationally underserved children in poor countries. Watch this fun New York Times review featuring David Pogue.
Here's the deal:
For two weeks, starting November 12, you can give one and get one. Give one XO laptop to a child in a developing country and have another delivered to your own child for Christmas for $399.
What an incredible Christmas present to give a child that could literally change the course of her life and her family's life. What a wonderful gift for your child and yourself.
The possible impact of this innovation is so huge that a couple of Vatican commissions are sponsoring an evening (October 29) called Bold Innovations in Education: “One Laptop Per Child”with the creator of the XO, Professor Professor Nicholas Negroponte for superiors of missionary groups and those involved in the education of the poor.
