Changed lines 26-28 from:
Power management is frustrating -- it's great to get so much out of the batteries, but when they're low, it shuts down w/out warning. So if you're running off the power cord, and the power cord falls out of the wall and you don't notice it.... So it goes!

Apparently this has been improved in more recent updates... Need to update, and the SD card issue has been solved, I understand.

(:description the OLPC XO laptop project :)
!! One tiny laptop
I bought one (off ebay, as the [=G1G1.1=] ended Dec 31, 2007) in late May, 2008

Getting to know Sugar and the underlying Fedora 7 system.

very slowly....

It's small and cute. And very small. The rubbery-keyboard is less tactile than I thought (smoother plastic; I was expecting something.. grippier). But typing is possible. As on all laptops, I miss the function keys, but the 4 oddly-marked XO functions keys are handy for jumping around Sugar.

Some odd keys not currently used.

The pads at the sides are not used.

The mouse-sensor area can be jumpy; I need to get a mouse (or trackball, better for portability?). Would also be interested in a USB keyboard for tryout -- loses portability, though.
