Production of One Million OLPC XOs to Begin

Network World reports that Quanta has received orders to produce the first million OLPC XO laptops for the One Laptop per Child project.

One million computers is just the beginning:

“Quanta said it could ship between 5 million to 10 million units this year because seven nations have already signed up for the project. That may be enough to reduce the costs and meet the $100 goal sooner than expected.

The governments that have committed to buy laptops for their schoolchildren include Argentina, Brazil, Libya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Thailand and Uruguay.”
