+ - David Pougue reviews the XO

Submitted by Maximum Prophet
Maximum Prophet (716608) writes "He seems to like it.

To quote "And sure enough, the bloggers and the ignorant have already begun to spit on the XO laptop. "Dude, for $400, I can buy a real Windows laptop," they say.

Clearly, the XO's mission has sailed over these people's heads like a 747.

The truth is, the XO laptop, now in final testing, is absolutely amazing, and in my limited tests, a total kid magnet. Both the hardware and the software exhibit breakthrough after breakthrough — some of them not available on any other laptop, for $400 or $4,000."
