Yay!!! We received our OLPC XO laptop today!!!

Maybe it’s because I don’t get out much, but this one of the coolest pieces of hardware I’ve seen in a while. It’s worth the $400 even without the satisfaction of buying a second one for someone who needs it.

It’s heavier than I thought it would be, a bit smaller than I thought. Functionally, it competes with any laptop out there, USB slots, SD slot, great display than turns into a tablet, a half dozen input mechanisms, hardened for child use. Really amazing. I can’t believe they’re only $177 to build.

I’ll post a proper review later here. Here are some pictures:
