A New Meaning For 'Give One Get One' Free

SUREN on November 24, 2008

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project has launched its 2008 G1G1 campaign. Here is what G1G1 means.

  • $199 to give a laptop to a child in the developing world. and/or
  • $399 to give a laptop to a child and get one of your own.

As simple as that.

The XO laptop is designed for children and centers on providing a platform for 1:1 learning. While it is exciting that major PC manufacturers have launched sub-$500 laptops, the so-called netbooks category that features Linux-based OS', solid state hard drives, and ubiquitous network connectivity (see ASUS Eee PC, Dell Mini, Lenovo S Series, Intel Classmate PC), the OLPC project has the additional express intention of changing the world, one laptop at a time. We at Mobicip are working on supporting this effort the best we can. Soon we will support our service on Xo.
