Smile $100 laptop

As some of you will already know, MIT have developed a $100 laptop for people in the developing world: http://laptop.media.mit.edu/ Google "$100 laptop" for more info.

How long would it take one of the laptops to crunch a Mersenne number in the current window of testing?

These laptop require about a minute of winding up to get ten minutes of use -- this would be a lot of winding to crunch a GIMPS number

It would be very nice if somebody from the developing world found the next Mersenne prime using a "green machine."
