Dr. Battro takes issue with my paper on the One-Laptop-per-Child Programme that appeared in a 2010 issue of this journal (20/3). He raises a variety of issues that are relevant to this Programme but nowhere does he deal with my main point, namely, that poor countries simply cannot afford to give students their own laptops. The result would be as I show a serious imbalance in the education (and perhaps other) budgets.
