$399.00 laptop
« on: September 30, 2007, 04:56:49 PM »
I think this is a great program and I'm also real eager to try this laptop out for myself.

Starting November 12, One Laptop Per Child will be offering a Give 1 Get 1 Program for a brief window of time. For $399, you will be purchasing two XO laptops—one that will be sent to empower a child to learn in a developing nation, and one that will be sent to your child at home. If you're interested in Give 1 Get 1, we'll be happy to send you a reminder email. Just sign up in the box to the left and you'll receive your reminder prior to the November 12 launch date.

I'll be into that if the scheme is open to non-U.S. residents, must find out before Nov.


Thanks CHA

Same here.
I always thought those laptops looked pretty good, I kept wanting one.
Now I finally have a chance to maybe get one, I may take advantage of it if it's open to the UK.

That's a great cause.  I just wish I had an extra $390 lying around.

So you've got the other $9 lying around?
I resemble that!         ;D

Heh, yeah, I was going to use it to take my girlfriend out to a romantic Dollar Menu dinner for two, but I think it will be better in my computer fund.
