It all sounds so fantastic, that all children should have access to a laptop.
Well, recently I was in the tiny Pacific country of Niue, where every child actually has a laptop.
More than that, basically the entire nation (of 1,500 people) is a wireless hotspot, so every child can access the internet.
But don't be misled, the laptops given to the children perform about three functions. They do connect to the internet, but even doing something as simple as a google search is next to impossible, because the speed is so slow.
If you don't mind using a keyboard that looks like a child's toy (huge letters that require a few fingers to press, thus making typing impossible) and a screen that is tiny, I guess you could use a notepad to write a school essay.
Perhaps they achieved what every third world nation seems to want, one laptop per child, and have bragging rights as the first place on earth to do this, but surely the next step should be "one half decent laptop per child".
