Ed Felten got his hands on one of the laptops, and then had the great idea of giving it to a 12-year-old friend of his to review. (After all, the machine is designed for kids.) He then published the resulting review on his Blog. It’s a good read. This is how it concludes:
All in all, this laptop is great for its price, its job, and its value. It is almost perfect. Just speed it up, give it a little more battery charge hold, and you have yourself the perfect laptop. I’m sure kids around the world will really love, enjoy, and cherish these laptops. They will be so useful. This program is truly amazing.
