About 65,000 children in the Caldas region of Colombia will soon be getting an XO laptop.
It has signed up to the One Laptop Per Child programme which puts cheap PCs into the hands of schoolchildren.
OLPC aims to boost the educational prospects of children in developing nations through technology.
Small towns and rural areas will get the first 15,000 XO laptops. The rest will be distributed over the next 18 months to the region's larger towns.
