The OLPC product will not be marketed normally, but sold directly to governments in high quantities, so they can give it to the children. This has a nice side-effect: if any of these laptops are found in any regular market, you instantly know, that it was sold illegaly.
These laptops are for education of children, not for being sold for money. Ideally, they are unsellable, so they can only benefit the children, in the way that seems most useful
