OLPC Laptop Has Arrived!

About ten minutes ago the FedEx guy showed up at my door with a package. I saw the OLPC (one laptop per child) logo on the box and I immediately dropped everything and busted out my camera. The Give One Get One Laptop finally arrived! Here are some initial pics…I’m shocked at how small it is.

Just connected to wi-fi, I’ll write a review after I’ve toyed with it…

    It’s pretty cool…except I’m having trouble connecting to my network or to Mike’s network. It looks like it’s connected, then it asks for your password again. Since today was the first day of shipments, there’s not exactly ANY documented cases of connection problems. Aaaah. Oh well, will keep trying…can’t wait to get online with this bad boy.

    Finally connected late last night. It’s pretty damn cool. I’m planning on spending some more time in the next few days messing with it, and should have a review up next week sometime.
