OLPC Give 1 Get 1 Live

The One Laptop Per Child project today began its promised Give 1 Get 1 program, offering the XO notebook to North American buyers for the first time. The limited-run sale is meant to help fund the production of the developing-world portable and asks customers to buy two units as part of a $400 pack: one of the systems goes to one of the countries using the XO for education while another becomes the users' own, the OLPC team says. Those simply interested in charity can pay $200 to fund the cost of a system.

All systems are now set to come with a copy of SimCity for their Linux operating system; Americans also receive free T-Mobile HotSpot access for the built-in Wi-Fi connection. The OLPC group plans to end the Give 1 Get 1 run on November 26th and has not announced future special runs or permanent production.
