10,000. Okay. How about this?

I suppose a batch of 10,000 costs $200 each from OLPC, that's a $2M capital

That's just 10 schools with 4 year groups each, at 250 laptops per year

Finding ten ritzy private primary schools in the US where the parents can
drop $400 in a hat shouldn't be too hard for a savvy sales person. Give
them a $25k retainer and a $225k upside. If they close the dozen schools,
put $500k into the after sales support, $1M aside for the next batch, and
$250k for the sales person's take in the next round.

Run the next round in the UK, Canada, or Germany. Then there's the $2M in
the Sugar Labs account for a side-round that be sold in lots of 20 for any
classroom anywhere in the world.
