Business Solutions to Poverty: The $100 Laptop

A $100 laptop that is profitable for the manufacturer is a much better solution than just giving free computers to the poor. Why? Because the small investment they make will provide an incentive to actually learn to use it.

    The pRoblem is that it’s not profitable. The machines cost $110 at the moment. That may come down thanks to Moore’s law, but there is charitable money involved for the moment.

    $110? Sounds like they need to outsource it.
