Give One, Get One (G1G1) Amazon/OLPC store

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), a non-profit equity computing project opened its Give One, Get One (G1G1) store on Amazon.com. For $399, customers buy one OLPC XO Laptop to donate to a developing nation, and get one for themselves or to give as a gift.

With Amazon’s assistance, this year’s Give One, Get One campaign is an “ongoing” program with otherwise similar details. The $399 donation Places one XO in a developing nation, and one in the buyer’s hands. The XO is a 7.5” convertible rugged notebook with a 433 MHz processor, 256 MB DRAM, 1 GB flash memory, 802.11b/g/s, SD slot, and a built-in webcam and microphone. Once again, the operating system is the much-lauded GNU/Linux-based OS called Sugar.

A $199 “donation only” version also remains available. OLPC’s G1G1 promotion will continue until December 26.
