The children's laptop from One Laptop per Child is a potent learning tool created expressly for the world’s poorest children living in its most remote environments.
The laptop was designed collaboratively by experts from both academia and industry, bringing to bear both extraordinary talent and many decades of collective field experience in every aspect of this non-profit humanitarian project.
The result is a flexible, ultra low-cost, power-efficient, responsive, and durable machine with which nations of the emerging world can leapfrog decades of development—immediately transforming the content and quality of their children’s learning. Leaving a big impact on children’s way of learning, the XO laptops have undoubtedly changed the lives of innumerable young minds with a desire to learn.

Laplet is a laptop that is both a laptop and a tablet. It meets the computing needs of a child's education 360 degrees. Unlike a laptop, its not just good for offices.
