See the XO-1.5 Laptop in DC on September 8


Thanks to the tireless efforts of Mike Lee and the whole OLPC Learning Club DC entourage, there will be a very special event next week in Washington DC. In addition to the Class Acts Writing Sprint, we'll have the first unveiling of OLPC's XO-1.5 laptop.

Is this the XO-1.5 laptop?

The OLPC Learning Club DC and HacDC will announce their joint effort to launch an XO Lending Library on Tuesday night, with SJ Klein bringing along a very cool new device:

SJ will also show a working prototype of One Laptop per Child's brand new XO-1.5 laptop, which uses a newer, faster processor and has more onboard memory. The XO 1.5 now dual boots into Gnome desktop as well as the child-friendly Sugar Learning Platform. Both are based on Fedora 11.

If you are in Washington, DC, make plans to be at HacDC, and if you can't make it, be sure to subscribe to OLPC News via RSS Feed, Emails or Twitter to watch the event in real time.
