Uruguay First To Buy Cheap Laptops

Uruguay has become the first country to order the famed "$100" laptops, with a contract to buy 100,000 of the devices for the country's schoolchildren. What do you think?

"Haha. I love how $1,200 is too expensive for some people to spend on a laptop. Like, who are these people?"

"That's one laptop for every 30 people in Uruguay, a fact they can use when promoting their country."

"This devalues the whole point of poverty."
