It has been speculated that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program may sell their revolutionary and cheap laptops to the general public. However there is a catch, it is probable that while they may sell the laptops to the public, it will probably require that you buy two laptops in order to supply one for yourself and one for a child in a developing nation for whom these laptops are made. For most people, this will not be a problem, considering that at the most buying two will cost maybe about $300 which is still much cheaper than a laptop by today's standards.
The laptop is made with the children in mind, not only because of it's durable shelling and ability to recharge the battery with a manual hand crank, but because it is very simple and easy to use, which is all many of us are looking for in a laptop.
So what do you think? Plan to buy two of these laptops from this great project if given the chance? Don't need a laptop, or even want one? Tell us how you feel on the forums
