Earlier this week I read about ‘$100 laptop’ to sell to public. The organisation behind the project has launched the “give one, get one” scheme that will allow US residents to purchase two laptops for $399 (£198). One laptop will be sent to the buyer whilst a child in the developing world will receive the second machine, such that computer enthusiasts in the developed world will soon be able to get their hands on the so-called “$100 laptop”. The G1G1 scheme, as it is known, will offer the laptops for just two weeks, starting on the 12 November. The laptop, originally targeted with a price tag of $100, now comes at $188 (PC World). But that has not deterred the promoters who still believe that the OLPC is a remarkable solution to bridge the digital divide.
