      • Physical environment
      • Effective distribution
      • OLPC
      • Cost
    • … about the price…
      • One Laptop Per Nigerian child would be 73% of the entire governmental income and One Laptop Per Argentinean child would be half of the non-salary education budget . Countries like Rwanda or Nepal have no hope to afford even $100 per child out of their own national budgets.

      • Laptop cost
      • Training
      • Software maintenance
      • Hardware maintenance
      • Internet connection – satellite, mobile...
      • Estimated about 978$ - 5years
      • (2006 figures)
    • … 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
    • … what else?..
      • All children who get an XO will need training!
      • Content
      • Training of teachers
    • 8. How to proceed?
