Here is a link to an article about how MIT plans to provide $100 durable laptops to the children of the world.  This is done through a non-profit program called One Laptop Per Child.  Local governments would purchase and distribute the laptops.

The laptops run on Linux and are made of weatherproof rubber.  Since not every child may always have power available, the laptop includes a manual crank to recharge the battery.  See pictures of the proposed laptops.

A very intriguing concept.  Now, if someone can set up Internet access, we will have a whole new group of people publishing web sites and joining our group!
