100 Dollar Laptop Available to General Public

Sep 24, 2007

The 100 dollar laptop, which was designed for use in structurally underdeveloped areas, is available to the general public for a limited period, bundled with a sponsored machine for a child in need.

"Give one get one": as of 12 November the general public will be able to purchase the laptop, which was developed for children from poorer regions. The purchasing price of US$ 399 includes US$ 200 that "One Laptop per Child" (OLPC) will use to send one of the $ 188 Linux devices to a child in need.

The non-profit organization is looking to boost turnover with this promotional activity, as what initially seemed to be encouraging looking promises by government officials have failed to materialize. If you would like to donate US$ 200 for a laptop, you can do, but you will not be given a machine of your own at this time.
