By using the new string-pulley-charged XO laptops sold by the non-profit group, The One Laptop per Child Foundation, Uruguay will be the first developing nation to have laptops for every student. Government officials say that half of the four hundred thousand laptops have already been delivered. The rest are expected before the end of the year. Plan Ceibal, the government's project to provide laptops to all school-age children, is being led by Miguel Mariatti.

By using the new string-pulley-charged XO laptops sold by the non-profit group, The One Laptop per Child Foundation, Uruguay will be the first developing nation to have laptops for every student. Government officials say that half of the four hundred thousand laptops have already been delivered. The rest are expected before the end of the year.

[Miguel Mariatti, Direct Plan Ceibal]:
There are still two hundred thousand computers that we have to deliver this year between May and October in the capital Montevideo, where there is a large concentration of children and schools. The coverage we will achieve within two years will be one hundred percent of the school-age children. The computers will all have an Internet connection in their schools and their neighborhoods.

The laptop features a string-pulley to charge its battery, a keyboard that switches between languages, a digital video camera, wireless connectivity and Linux open-source operating software tailored for remote regions. Children are encouraged to use the computers both in class and outside of school. The XO laptops are built for portability. They rely on flash memory and four USB ports to add memory, instead of conventional hard drives.

[Claudio Alvarez, Student]:
Sometimes you have to buy books but now you can download it from the Internet and that's it. You don't have to be buying books. So instead of buying books you can buy a meal.

The One Laptop per Child project is founded by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology academics. Many people have applauded the XO laptops for their innovations. But their biggest fans have to be the kids.

[Noelia Valenzuela, Student]:
We download videos and play games on the Internet sometimes when we are at school. Otherwise we look for study material, do the homework our teacher sends us, and we do a lot of work in class.

The XO laptops have been deployed in over 25 countries including Peru, Brazil, Rwanda, Afghanistan and Mozambique.
