Orange laptop

Vivid, ripe-for-the-picking orange. That's the latest color to enlist in Negroponte's campaign to bring low-cost computing to schoolchildren and their families in developing nations. The secondary color joins lime green, powder blue and rain-slicker yellow (unveiled in April; click here for more images) in the palette of options for prototypes being touted by Negroponte's One Laptop per Child organization.
