I have just come across the initiative to give one laptop per child. The initative aims to provide a laptop to children in developing countries. This can be done either by buying one laptop (parts of the purchase price are then used to buy a laptop for the child) or by giving an outright donation.
The laptop is simply "cute"! I tried it and realized that I have to start thinking like a child to really even "open" it. The coolest thing about it is the possibility to rotate the picture in the screen with just one click.
