Submission + - David Pougue reviews the XO

Maximum Prophet 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."
