Give one, get one... for a limited time!

Thanks to KV for pointing out this morning that One Laptop Per Child is offering a give one, get one deal from today through November 26th. For $399, you'll be donating an XO laptop to a child in a developing nation, and getting another laptop for yourself or a child in your life. These awesome, low-cost laptops aren't available for sale, so this is the only way you can get one, if you want one for yourself.

It's a three-pound Linux laptop running simple software that's designed for easy web surfing and communicating, perfect for kids. These folks are making a huge effort to drive the cost of computer access down for children around the world, and their goal is to get to the $100 laptop point before long. For now, each donated XO laptop costs $200. If you go with the G1G1 offer, $200 of your $399 is a tax-deductible donation. For all U.S. donors who participate, T-Mobile is offering a year of free hotspot access.
