    I think the solar powered idea is a very good one because a lot of kids don’t have access to electricity. This shows that even if there are big challenges we can always overcome them. I also think the video chat thing is a good idea because if they chat with people from other countries they can get an idea of what other cultures are about.

    I think that buy one get one free is a good deal. Because if alot of kids here want those laptops then, alot of kids other places get them too. Also they are solor powerded so if you don’t have ecectricity you can still get on the computer. Those laptops are a great invention.

    I think that buy one give one to a kid in need is great.It gives kids without anything an education.They don’t have paper they have a lap top. They do not have to be plugged in.You can also put the computer on a mode where you can see it outside.That’s really helpful!

    I think that who ever thought of making a laptop like this was a complete genius.I think that these are the good people in the world that think about kids that are not as fortunate as the kids in America.I wish i could go around and thank all of the people that contributed with the XO Laptop.I hope that one day we can get a laptop to every kid in the less fortunate country’s.

    Wow those computers have a lot of nice apps on them and I bet those kids are so happy when they get one. I think this is a good idea that when someone buys one they give one to a child in Africa or south america. There a lot of good things on here but the best is that it is solar powered.

    I think that this is a good idea. It would allow people in places were they needed education to have it. I think that it being solar powered would allow it to be like a easy access. It would also make a kid smile. It is a super sweet idea. I hope this will allow kids to education in other countries.

    That is a really nice video, I am thinking right now to give someone a laptop. Because I want everybody to have a good education and I want to change the world. But I would have to think of a plan because I don’t know how to get those laptops and how to send them to people. I guess you can send any type of laptop and it will be the same. That man that was speaking I would agree with him and try to do something about it. I want children to have the same education as me, a good one.

    They must have thought about this a lot because the way it works is so…detailed. I also like how they thought about making based off of the places where they were most needed. I kind of want a laptop like that now that i watched that video. I also like how the mentioned smaller prices. That was smart.

    This video is great and i think they should keep doing what their doing because if more people go to school because they get a laptop then more of our education levels will get bigger and stronger. i would love to have a XO computer. Oh and the video was annoying because it keep freezing and it keep going when i paused it, but anyways back to the meaning….. i was great.

    This is great for the kids who are less fortunate then us. We complain about not getting the new IPod touch, they dream of having a MP3 player. I hope more people contribute to helping these kids and I hope that the XO company keeps giving laptops to kids. It is a dream come true to them.

    I think that it is good that it is solar power because a lot of people don’t have electricity. It is also really cool that you can just turn it around. You also don’t have to pay for all the wires you would need for the regular computer.

    That would be a good idea. Plus, they would not have to worry about paying for computers and for the applications on the computers. I also think a lot of students would like to use their own laptop in class. It would be very useful.
