The Final Design of the XO

I have seen it, touched it, and played with it. The final industrial design
prototype for the XO, the device that the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC)
Initiative is going to start shipping to countries across the world this
summer. AMD hosted a luncheon on Monday to give the press an update on the
project, and to unveil the completed design.

Although the exterior form factor is now pretty much set ("Unless," said OLPC
official Michalis Bletsas half-jokingly, "Nicholas has another late-night
inspiration."), there is still work to be done on the software package and the
hardware internals before the planned summer volume rollout of the unit.
