Good review, the OLPC is a great project and it’s good to see it for the better part passes the test. Yes they are slow, however they were made with cost being one of the primary factors and for disadvantaged children who’s never used a Dual Core decked out with 4gig of RAM i’m sure it would be brilliant.
I know when i was 12 and Commodore 64’s were the best thing, if somebody handed me a Commodore 16 i would of been doing backflips with excitement.
