BBC NEWS - Public can purchase $100 laptop

BBC NEWS | Technology | Public can purchase $100 laptop


Ah! Looks like the OLPC foundation wizened up! Though, I don't agree with the whole "selling to the public via Ebay" thing -- aye, that's ripe for corruption, that is.

The last thing we want is a third-world government selling their collection of OLPC computers wholesale on ebay for twice the price they bought them for. A nightmare scenario, true, and somewhat ridiculous, but it's possible.
