OLPC: One laptop per child

It’s a non-profit association which has develop a $100 laptop destinated to children in the developing world, who have limited access to education. You can read more about this initiative in the OPLC web site.

But, what do you think about this project? Do you guess that technology can actually help children in their own countries? Or they need more basic needings to be covered?

I’d like to know your opinions. Thanks in advance.
