the project known as one laptop per child has a new campaign to bring its computers to children in developing countries.

computer used in the one laptop per child program

the campaign will urge people in the united states and canada to spend just under four hundred dollars for two laptops. one will go to a child in a poor country. the other will go to the buyer.

the "give one, get one" campaign will start on november twelfth for two weeks only. project officials think the donations may help persuade governments of developing countries to buy more.

the green-and-white machines are specially designed for children in the developing world. the laptop, called the xo, does not use very much power. and if no electricity is available, users can charge the battery by hand by turning a crank.

the computer uses the free, open-source operating system linux. the color display can change to a black-and-white image so users are able to see it even in bright sunlight.
