After quite a while waiting our XO is finally here and I can only say good things about it so far. Firstly its much smaller than I had expected and not cheap and tacky at all (for a $200 laptop you expect it to be crappy to some degree). Its compact and easy to use – my kids are already making music on it albeit chicken sounds.
The best part is that, after spending hours at CES hunting down the ideal blogging device, it was on its way to me all along. Indeed, I could see using this nifty little machine to blog from practically anywhere: after all it is weather proof so it will endure the rainy season and the battery lasts for ages. Given that for each one you buy another is donated to a needy child, I wish I had bought another so I wouldn’t have to fight my kids for it!
