My OLPC arrived today and I thought I should share some information about
Build: All plastic, no vents, no fans, no moving parts, rubber membrane
keyboard is sealed, runs cool, should be able to withstand some serious
Screen: This has to be the most innovative part of the entire laptop. Its
has two modes, a LED backlit color mode, and a super high resolution
reflective greyscale mode. The quality of the color mode is mediocre,
however the greyscale quality is amazing.
Software: This takes a few minutes to figure out. After that its quite
easy to find your way around. I did find out that the OLPC doesn't
currently support WPA(2), however its does work, but not very well.
Camera: Quality isn't that great, but what do you expect for a 188$ machine.
I will reply with more information later.
