Just received my XO, and the Macbook Pro is certainly not a fair comparison.

Solar panel arrived today for the XO laptops in my classroom. Testing over the weekend at home, to school next week.
During lots of ups n downs in my post-college life, these cups have always been there.
Dedicated to Shankur!

Orange and red, baby. Note the same grippy texture. It's actually pleasant compared to the usual tactile feeling of complete smoothness (of varying quality).

The fifth XO laptop in my third grade classroom, a real Thanksgiving gift!
The One Laptop Per Child project designed these revolutionary little computers way back around 2006, started producing them around 2007, and made some available to the public in 2008 (if you were willing to buy two of them, and donate one back to the project). Though Istra was only 3 at the time, I went for the deal: to support the lofty project, and to get a cool device.
All these years later, Istra (now 5 years old) still plays with her OLPC -- proud to have her "very own laptop". Lately she mostly uses it to run Tux Paint (a simple paint program with stamps and magic!), and to go online and play starfall (a flash-based web site with games teaching kids how to read).
The OLPC is slow and a bit annoying for us adults -- but Istra is favoring it over our big fast computer for doing her stuff these days. And I hate to have to afflict the poor little thing with flash to play Starfall. But it's hers. She loves it.
In is picture we also see Emeth, only 3 years old, showing Istra where the button she is looking for in Tux Paint is. He loves Tux Paint as well. And he actually somehow knows where all the letters are on a keyboard, or buttons on a UI, faster and more absolutely than Istra quite often.
