As I reported early, OLPC is offering a very special "twofer" where if you buy two XO laptops for $400, one of them goes to you (or your
kid) and the other to a child in the developing world. The amazing little machine weights in at 3 pounds, is virtually
indestructible, is completely open source, and has everything from a
videocam, to microphone, stereo speakers, and game pad. The XO is designed to be a powerful educational tool, both in the classroom and at home.
Reportedly they ship sometime in early 2008, headed toward a child in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Haiti, Mongolia or Rwanda! Surf over to http://www.xogiving.org to get in on this special offer yourself. Expires on December 31!
