  15. 15. OLPC • Non-profit organization • Founded by Nicholas Negroponte, cofounder of the MIT • Design the OLPC, find sponsors and deals with the government
  16. 16. 5 What is it?
  17. 17. Cheap
  18. 18. • Large volume • No sales and marketing force • Display energy consumption • Direct distribution • Standardized • Low cost architecture • Linux and Open source software • Optimized software • Power management (about 10% of typical laptop)
  19. 19. Sustainable
  20. 20. • The laptop lifetime is 5 years or 2.5 times longer than a typical laptop • Half the size and weight of a typical laptop • Goal: not a single XO laptop should end up in a landfill
  21. 21. Some specifications… • 7.5 inch diagonal screen at 1200x900 (200 dpi) • 800x600 in grayscale – Sunlight readable! • Wi-fi, USB(x3), mic, speakers, camera, SD • Screen rotates to tablet mode • Water and dirt resistant keyboard – walk in the rain with it!

Countries like Rwanda or Nepal have no hope to afford even $100 per child out of their own national budgets. (2006 figures)
  27. 27. …and about the (real) costs…. • Laptop cost • Training • Software maintenance • Hardware maintenance • Internet connection – satellite, mobile... • Estimated about 978$ - 5years (2006 figures)
  28. 28. …the (2007) business model.. • G1 G1 Program Why not G1- G100/1000? • Budget for development • Non-profits means that profits may not be distributed to investors, so a non-profit doesn't have shareholders
  29. 29. …what else?.. • All children who get an XO will need training! • Content • Training of teachers
  30. 30. 8. How to proceed? • Piloting in different countries • Sugar independend of device • Improved interface • Improved distribution • Lower cost (75 $ in 2010) • Framework for implementation – Training, content etc.
