Diane, which version did you get?

Those machines started out as direct competition to the XO-1, almost a sort
of "Americanized XO" if you will. However the company has shown that they
are not looking to control the sub-notebook market by slowly shifting their
line to computers that are more along the line of the machines that companie
such as Dell and HP sell. However, since Asus cant really get a foot into
their market yet, Asus is still selling laptops and notebooks which hint at
the sub notebook/pc market, but only to differate themselves from the

which brings me back to the original question...which did you get? one of
the original and probably best ones off of e bay or one of the new 500
dollar ones?

also, will you be at MIT this saturday or no? apparently i havent be doing
as good of a job as i thought i have when it comes to reading these weekly e
mails so i am trying to make sure that this time around i know who is/isnt
going to be there and whats going on

speaking of which...


whats the developers room that you mentioned you started about?
