The South American country has bought 100,000 of the machines for schoolchildren aged six to 12.
A further 300,000 may be purchased to provide a machine for every child in the country by 2009.The order will be a boost for the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) organisation behind the project which has admitted difficulties getting concrete orders.
An additional boost to the program may happen on November 12th, when the "Give 1, Get 1" program starts, allowing end users to buy their own OLPCs.
