New gadget!

10 January 2008

My OLPC XO arrived today. First impressions:

  • It’s quite big!
  • Nice build quality – not as good as the Eee, but then it costs half as much.
  • The “rabbit ear” wifi antennae are incredibly cute.
  • It boots bit slowly compared to the Eee.
  • My first attempt at connecting to wifi failed – I could easily find out the first steps of what to do, but was foiled when the dialog where you enter the network key refused to close when I hit OK

More later.
