It has been announced that the One Laptop Per Child has been delayed again.

The low cost hardware suffered delays earlier this year at the same time it was announced that the "$100" laptop would in fact cost $188.

Due for launch on 12th November, the latest problems to affect the timescale are being blamed on "last-minute bugs" in the Chinese manufacturing process.

Chief technology officer for OLPC, Mary Lou Jepson has indicated that while some buyers will receive their devices before Christmas, others will have to wait on a first come, first served basis.
