G1G1 will be global this year, available (via laptop.org/global) in every country where the XO has passed certification and labelling requirements.
This is an initial list of countries we will be shipping to. To send a laptop to anywhere but the US, you’ll need to enter your information via amazon.co.uk, and (for now) pay roughly 50 GBP in shipping. Update: we are working on reducing the shipping costs for the EU and Canada.
We are adding to this list all the time. If you don’t see your country listed, and can help us work through the requirements where you live, let me know. You can preorder a G1G1 laptop directed to any address in the world where UPS ships, excluding the six embargoed countries below. We prioritize the countries in which we quicken the certification process based partly on the level of interest and the number of preorders, so make your interest known!
You can currently receive your G1G1 “Get” machines in any of the following countries:
Europe : Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom
Countries where you will not be able to receive G1G1 machines:
All machines shipped this year will be US/International keyboards. Details to come on the available adapters; UK, and US adapters will be available; some EU recipients will also receive or will need to get a US-to-EU converter.
Australia is getting final certification this week, and launching their own G1G1 OZ. Updates coming and contacts still needed for: APO addresses for Fulbright scholars and military deployments overseas, South Africa, Bolivia, India, Pakistan, China, Taiwan, and Russia… as well as most other African countries.
