Hi, I'm Noah, and today I'm going to tell you about buying an XO Laptop. The XO laptop is a very simple laptop that was developed by the One Laptop Per Child Foundation. It's use is meant to be for children in under developed countries to be able to learn computer skills on very cheap, affordable computer that governments can afford to buy for their schools. However, OLPC used to have a program called Buy One, Get One, where people in the United States could make a donation for a child to get a laptop, and also receive a laptop for themselves. Now, the price of an, of an XO Laptop is two hundred dollars, so for four hundred dollars you could both get one, and give to a child who needed one. At the moment it is still possible to buy an XO Laptop for a child in an under developed country by making a donation to the OLPC foundation through Amazon. The price of one laptop is one hundred and ninety-nine dollars, but you can also donate up a hundred laptops worth of money. However, through this way of giving, you yourself won't be receiving an XO Laptop, so if you really want to get your hands on one, you might want to head to eBay, or a simple search for XO Laptop will turn out a few results from people selling used, second hand OLPC's. The Buy One, Get One program has since expired, but it has been held twice by OLPC foundation, and it's probable that they'll hold another one. So, if you'd like to take part in that program, you can simply wait for them to put it back in place.
