    Hundred dollar laptop

    Computer enthusiasts in the developed world will soon be able to get their hands on the so-called "$100 laptop".

    The organisation behind the project has launched the "give one, get one" scheme that will allow US residents to purchase two laptops for $399 (£198).

    One laptop will be sent to the buyer whilst a child in the developing world will receive the second machine

    The G1G1 scheme, as it is known, will offer the laptops for just two weeks, starting on the 12 November.

    It's a good idea and these guys have put millions on the line , I really hope it works out for them , But I personally would need to try it out before I forked 400 over for a toy for my kids.
