>   Computer enthusiasts in the developed world will soon be able to get
>   their hands on the so-called "$100 laptop".
>   The organisation behind the project has launched the "give one, get
> one"
>   scheme that will allow US residents to purchase two laptops for $399.
>   One laptop will be sent to the buyer whilst a child in the
>   developing world will receive the second machine.
>   The G1G1 scheme, as it is known, will offer the laptops for just two
>   weeks, starting on the 12 November.
