One Laptop per Child – Give One Get One

Reading Time: 2 minutes

180pxgreen_and_white_machine180pxgreen_and_white_machineNow is your chance to get a really cool laptop for your family and donatOlpc_wiki_logoOlpc_wiki_logoe to charity at the same time!  The One Laptop per Child project has been going for a while, and today they started their Give One Get One program in the U.S. and Canada.  You spend $399 plus shipping, and you get a cool new laptop with way more features than you’d expect for the price, and another laptop gets donated to a child in the developing world.  If you’re a U.S. resident, you also get a $200 tax deduction.

Act fast if you’re interested, because they’re only available until November 26, and I do mean only, because they’ve said they won’t be offering this deal again.  I ordered one (or, rather, two) this morning.  I can’t wait to play with it give it to my kids.  It really looks like the perfect laptop for kids—easy to use and able to take a lot of punishment.
