BBC News reports that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project’s $100 laptop is a stage closer. It’s a bit of a misnomer as at present it comes in at $176 but the aim is to drive costs down as orders increase. It looks like the laptop, known as the XO, could be sold in developed countries on a ‘buy two, get one’ basis – the other one going to a child in a developing country.
