OLPC XO-1.75 Laptop Available in March
One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is quite busy these days. They are currently preparing for the unveiling of the XO-3 Tablet at CES while they are also in preparation to launch a new laptop model in March.
The XO-1.75 is one of the original XO Laptops announced in the past. It will feature a Marvell Armada PXA618 ARM-based processor, which is the same chip used in the XO-3 tablet. But the laptop will have a QWERTY keyboard, a sunlight readable display, and the same rugged design of earlier XO Laptop models. The key difference is the ARM-based processor which uses just 2 Watts, or about half as much power as the x86 chip in the XO-1.5 Laptop.
According to OLPC News, the XO-1.75 will ship in March for $185 and up. Exact prices will vary depending on the configuration, e.g. 4GB or 8GB of flash storage.
