OLPC announces $399 “Give 1 Get 1” holiday XO promo

Filed under:

Starting November 12th you can finally fork over some cash for an XO and get one shipped to your door — as long as you’re willing pay double for some kid in a developing nation to get one as well. It’ll cost you $399, which is hardly a bargain given the other cheap-as-free laptops making the rounds these days, but the XO is undoubtedly novel, and we imagine not a few nerds will want to get their hands on one this holiday season, or at least bestow the little green machine upon one of their nerdling progeny. Apparently this offer, which has been rumored for quite a while now, will only last for a limited time — OLPC News has it on good authority the promo will go for two weeks, and the machines will ship to your door in time for Christmas — but it’s never to early or late to donate toward the project in general. $200 will build and ship a laptop to one of those millions of kids who totally needed to be playing Doom yesterday.
