I received a message from the OLPC team informing me that I will be receiving a B laptop early this week for testing purposes. The unit is being FEDEX to my office. I saw a similar machine a couple of weeks ago when a rep from OLPC based in NYC came to my office and showed me the machine.
I was very impressed with the B laptop, especially with the software that has been developed to allow kids share tools and information, and work together in all sorts of projects. It is also very small and light and kids will undoubtedly indentify with it as soon as they see it.
More on this later as I will for sure play with the laptop for a bit.
