> Might 1GB of RAM  become a performance bottleneck?

I myself am skeptical of efforts to use the OLPC where a desktop system 
might be more effective.  I've run various large applications on an 
XO-1.5 system, and have not myself experienced "memory shortage".

Unless the RAM chips on the XO-1.75 are socketed (and thus easily 
replaceable), it seems to me that it would be easier to add swap space 
(rather than RAM) to those systems used to run particularly 
memory-hungry applications (such as video editing).
