"$100" OLPC XO-1 to cost at least $188, over $200 in Uruguay
The "$100 laptop" from the OLPC Foundation is in no way a "$100 laptop." The latest price hike by the Foundation pushes the overall cost of each XO-1 machine up to $188, which is a fair amount higher than the $176 that the machine was said to cost back in May. On a per country basis, the laptops could cost even more than that, with OLPCNews reporting that the cost per laptop in Uruguay is $205 due to a partnership with Brighstar Uruguay SA. Negroponte, maybe it's time to change that "$100 laptop" tagline.
