Peru, one of the developing nations in the region, has made the biggest order for the XO laptops so far at 270,000+ units, with the first batch already making it to schools in rural areas and raising students interest.
Despite of the higher than anticipated price, it would seem like the rugged laptops are still the best fit for such an environment. Uruguay has also ordered 100,000 XOs, and according to an OLPC spokesperson, some 150,000 more laptops will make it to countries that include Rwanda, Mongolia, Haiti, and Afghanistan in early 2008 thanks to the "Give One, Get One" promotion offered in the U.S.
