I think that as noble an idea it is to help bridge the growing global education gap that it's going to create an environmental issue. I don't think we have any cheap ways of making computer monitors without oodles of heavy metals.

In California they charge you a "computer recycling" fee when you buy a new computer. They figure it's easier to collect it now than later when you could just secretly throw it in the dump. It's not that bad (around eight dollars) but that's a lot if you're actually trying to get under $100.
