One Laptop per Child (OLPC) to Restart the Give 1 Get 1 Program on November 17th via Amazon.com

If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you know that I’m a HUGE supporter of what the folks at One Laptop per Child are doing.  Previously they had done a program where you could get a XO laptop and give one to a child in the developing world for $400.

Well, OLPC is restarting the Give 1 Get 1 program on November 17th through Amazon.com.

Last week a One Laptop Per Child official leaked that Amazon.com will be taking the orders for the company’s upcoming Give 1 Get 1 program. Through OLPC’s second annual Give 1, Get 1 program the XO laptop will be made available to U.S. and Canadian consumers, but only if they buy one to donate to a developing nation.

OLPC Founder Nicholas Negroponte confirmed that Amazon.com will offer the XO laptop starting on the Give 1, Get 1 launch on November 17. According to Negroponte the laptops will retail for $399.
