Buy one = give one for free to a needy child deal.

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on December 09, 2006 07:33 AM
I would buy one today to $200.

Heck, why not sell them in the market place where you offer a price where if someone buys one then another one is given away for free in some corner of the world and have a non-pofit available to give a receipt for the donation of the additional sum for tax donation deduction purposes. If that meant that some had to pay $260 for the laptop and got a $130 donation reciept... I bet many would line up for the deal.

How about everyone else would this sound good to you too?
