One Laptop Per Child

I just placed an order for the One Laptop Per Child program. It’s 400 bucks well spent, and I recommend you do the same. It’s available as of today for the US and Canada. You get two right now under their Give One, Get One program.

In addition, if you Canadians can find a way to get an American to place the order (like I’m doing), you’ll get yourself free wifi at T-Mobile hotspots for a year. If you travel enough, that alone is worth the price of the machines.

Also, as Chris Penn put it, marketers have yet another reason to buy the machines: Thousands of them will be coming online during the holidays, so getting to know them is a great idea.

Anyway, so I get one of them, and the second one I buy is automatically going to someone in need, which I feel great about. Go and order one today.

    These look awesome. And I think it’s a fantastic program. You should do a review of the laptop on your blog when you get it.

    btw, I think there’s a glitch with your ‘Give one Get one’ link.

    The One Laptop Per Child is indeed an innovative idea produced by the geniuses (I don’t mean this sarcastically) at MIT. However, a major flaw and concern is, “What about America’s improverished people?” The idea of giving a laptop to every child is a very nice one, but some of our own should be considered too.
