PC's for the poor

or a Children's_Machine is a nice idea but you can get a used computer for $20 ~ $100
and half the time its got software.. or you load a "pay for" linux!, or dont!!,
sorry if this makes you sad but the "initiatives" around the world to "empower" the poor are pork barrel..

still.. the computers look cool and have nice features..appropriate technology would include
a hand crank generator, solar power, car battery drive etc...and some do :-)
