PCWORLD: OLPC ‘Give 1 Get 1’ Laptop Program Now Available on Amazon

OLPC ‘Give 1 Get 1’ Laptop Program Now Available on Amazon – PC World

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) association launched its Give 1 Get 1 program for a second time, allowing people to buy one of their iconic green mini-laptops and donate one to a child in the developing world at the same time for just US$399.

This year, OLPC teamed up with Amazon for smoother ordering and distribution.

Amazon will begin taking orders for the XO laptops [today]. The devices will be shipped within 30-days in the U.S. or longer for people ordering from the U.K. or other parts of the world.
There are several ways to participate in the Give 1 Get 1 program.

In Give 1 Get 1, people pay US$399 for two XO laptops, one sent to a child in a developing country and the other sent to the donor. Those who don’t want an XO can also simply give as many laptops as they want at $199 each.

People in the U.S. can order at http://www.amazon.com/xo.

People outside the U.S. can order at http://www.amazon.co.uk/xo.
