The One Laptop Per Child project is opening its doors on November 12 to purchasing. For $199, you can donate a laptop to a child in a developing nation.
For $399, you can get one yourself and donate one under their Give 1 Get 1 program beginning November 12.
I’m buying one for myself, but not for charitable reasons.
Think carefully. Thousands, if not millions, of brand new Internet users will be signing on for the first time on these machines. If you don’t have one, you have no idea what their experience will be like, especially with your brand and your products.
Frankly, if you’re in marketing and you don’t buy one of these, you’re missing a boat that will be sailing very soon.
