Buy a laptop for a child, get one for yourself

Between Nov 12 and 26, US and Canadian consumers will have an opportunity to spend $400 and send a laptop to a child in a developing nation, and get one for themselves “before Xmas.”

What you do with your laptop is then your choice. Give it to a local school, or charity, or use it yourself. The laptop of course will be very basic, and will not be up to the standards many expect from today’s computers. But that’s not the point.

If you don’t care about getting the laptop for yourself, you can send a laptop to a child for $200, at anytime following the link above.

Normally these laptops aren’t purchasable by US consumers – that’s the deal being offered for the two weeks in November. You can buy one for yourself if you buy one for charity too.
