I love the whole project, and I really want one of these. Hopefully they’ll do something other than green, though

  1. Well it will be kind of hard for you to get one of those, since the main objective is to distribute them in third world nations where computer-related education really needs a boost. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me to see it on ebay, considering the twisted world we live in.

    It is an excellent project, with excellent objectives and people working on it.

    I wish them the best.

  2. There certainly will be a grey market in these things, but there’ll be no need to get involved in it. They will be sold, perhaps slightly modified, throughout the developed world: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070329-olpc-xo-manufacturer-to-sell-budget-portables-in-developed-countries.html
