One Laptop per Child

This is one of the first pictures of a laptop in a new campaign by an American charity called One Laptop per Child.

It's called the B1, runs a special version of Linux, sports a built in webcam, has three hi-speed USB slots and has the ability to link up to other B1s in the area.

Luckily it's bright green, ideal for frog loving toddlers. It also is apparently lighter than a lunchbox and smaller than a textbook and possibly better than any other school related item.

Critics have said that the laptop is like a consumer gadget. Yeah, if bright lime green is your sort of thing. And they said why not just get a normal laptop. You could but this one's only $100.

It's twisty too.
