Nonprofit may launch $350 laptop by Christmas - Boston.com

This should count as a charitable donation, imho; by the end of 2007, you'll probably be able to get a regular Wintel/Lintel laptop for not much more than $350.  HP's web site, for example, currently has laptops starting at $449.

A nonprofit group that designs low-cost computers for poor children may start selling $350 laptops on the commercial market by Christmas, an executive said on Monday.

The One Laptop Per Child Foundation's chief technology officer, Mary Lou Jepsen, said the computer could sell initially for about $350, or twice its production cost, although the group is also considering a higher price tag.
