Give one, get one: OLPC available now

For $400 you can get an OLPC laptop and pay for another for a child in a developing country. Plus, T-Mobile will throw in a year of free Hotspot access, which I believe is worth $30/month ($360/year). I think that may be enough to sway me to buy one. The hardware is impressive. Apparently, the screen can do 1200×900 in grayscale. If it can run Emacs, that’s enough to hack Squeak and Scheme on a lightweight Linux laptop. This may sate my urge to get an Eee.
