Do you want a XO laptop for Christmas? Clock-stopping hot educational technology for your children, here in America? Then you're gonna love this: as OLPC News predicted, Nichols Negroponte has modified his XO sales plan for One Laptop Per Child as government orders failed to materialize and the XO price rose.
Starting November 12, One Laptop Per Child will be offering a Give 1 Get 1 Program for a brief window of time. For $399, you will be purchasing two XO laptops - one that will be sent to empower a child to learn in a developing nation, and one that will be sent to your child at home.But you better sign up quick. XO-1 computer orders only be accepted for two weeks, November 12 to November 26, with delivery promised in time for One Laptop Per Christmas Tree.
I don't know about you, but I plan on buying a XO-1 laptop for every child (and child at heart) on my block!
