Buy one-take one laptop

A nonprofit organization called One Laptop Per Child on Monday launched a program that for a limited time, between Nov. 12 and Nov. 26, allows residents of the U.S. and Canada to purchase a laptop for a child in a developing country and receive another one for personal use. The laptops are designed, manufactured, and distributed by One Laptop Per Child, an organization created in 2005 by MIT professor Nicholas Negroponte. T-Mobile said it will offer participants a one-year complimentary subscription to its HotSpot service, which provides Wi-Fi Internet access at more than 8,500 locations in the U.S. That includes Starbucks coffee shops, Borders bookstores, Hyatt Hotels, Amtrak stations, and airports.
