Give One Get One WORLDWIDE

One Laptop per Child: Give 1 Get 1
Give One Get One has gone global!

As of today, you can order from http://laptop.org/global. Amazon.co.uk will take payment. This is the site that was previously used to take European pre-orders, and the following applies for those pre-orders too.

There are currently 44 countries which OLPC can ship to. This list will grow according to demand; donors from other countries are encouraged to pre-order anyway (no payment will be taken unless your order can definitely be fulfilled), as this may trigger your country being added.

Things to be aware of:

  • You will be billed by Amazon.co.uk in Pound Sterling (GBP). If outside the UK, check with your credit card provider for the exact exchange rate and any additional fees that will be applied.
  • You are limited to the payment methods that Amazon.co.uk accepts.
  • A £50.00 handling and delivery charge applies, so the total cost to Give One and Get One is £325
  • The laptop comes with a US International keyboard. Note that this is slightly different from a UK keyboard, for example the @ and ” keys are swapped. There is a photo of the keyboard on the product page.
  • The laptop comes with a 3-prong UK plug on the charger. Consumers from outside the UK will have to purchase an adapter. We’re working on other options too; stay tuned.
  • If you want to Get your XO in time for Christmas, then you should order early. The cut-off date remains to be finalized.

Please help us spread the word! More info on the OLPC blog.

    As you are mentioning the UK plug: is the power cable fixed permanently to the charger, or does it use IEC 60320 C5 or C13 connectors?

  2. Daniel Drake Says:

    The cable is fixed to the charger, it’s one unit. Here’s what they look like: http://www.ilovemyxo.com/product/xo-power-adapter.html
    The ones that come with G1G1-EU will be a UK plug rather than the US one that you can see there, but the rest of the unit is identical.
