You can purchase OLPC laptops next year

One Laptop per child is an education project, not a laptop project. It runs on Linux and just costs $100.

It is a proposed inexpensive laptop computer intended to be distributed to children around the world, especially to those in poor countries, to provide them with access to knowledge and modern forms of education.

This is low-power computers flash memory instead of a hard drive. It use mobile ad-hoc networking so that many machines can share one Internet connection.

Now the BBC is reporting that public can purchase $100 laptop next year 😀 :

The backers of the One Laptop Per Child project plan to release the machine on general sale next year.

But customers will have to buy two laptops at once – with the second going to the developing world.

Five million of the laptops will be delivered to developing nations this summer, in one of the most ambitious educational exercises ever undertaken.

This is a brilliant idea. I will defiantly purchase 2 laptops.
