On the point of rapid obsolecence, if many of the new applications can be handled at the server side instead of the PC side, the lifetime of the OLPC laptops may be extended. For example, real-time translation of spoken words from one human language to another would require more processing and memory than the OLPC laptop will have, but if it can be handled on a voice translation server "out there" on the Internet, the OLPC laptop will remain good enough.
