Faridah over at www.harambeeafrica.net mentioned a promising low-cost computer option ideal for rural areas.. Sounds like it's working well in Uganda:

"In Cairo at a conference organized by Global Development Network “Knowledge Management as an Enabler of Change and Innovation in Africa”, H.E. John Nasambu - Minister of State for ICT, Government of Uganda made a presentation on the Inveneo Computing Station. The Computing Station is an ultra-low-power, affordable and fully functional desktop computer designed for use in rural locations such as schools, clinics, field offices, community centers and Internet cafes……."

I looked around online, and found more details about Inveneo on its website.. it currently costs $469 USD. You can watch a video on its installation in Uganda here on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6n_mJdJ_2IU.
