ข่าวจากคุณ Kamthorn บอกว่า แลปท็อป $100 ตัวแรกเดินทางถึงสำนักงานใหญ่ OLPC (จาก blognone)

แลปท็อปเครื่องแรก รุ่น B1 ได้เดินทางมาถึงสำนักงานใหญ่ OLPC ที่แคมบริดจ์ ซึ่งตัวนี้เป็น 1 ใน 10 ตัวแรก ที่ผลิตขึ้นด้วยมือเพื่อตรวจสอบการทำงานของชิ้นส่วนต่างๆ ที่ประกอบเข้าด้วยกันว่าทำงานได้ถูกต้องทุกส่วน ทดสอบความเข้ากันได้ของทั้งระบบ และให้แน่ใจในขั้นตอนกระบวนการผลิตจริง...

      Special "DCON" chip, that enables deswizzling and anti-aliasing in color mode, while enabling the display to remain live with the processor suspended. Since we will always be running the frame buffer at 1200x900 resolution, the color resolution is lower, but exactly how this works out in effective resolution is very complex. Mary Lou Jepsen is planning to write document to explain the effective resolution, which is higher than if we simply reduced the size of the frame buffer and used the red, green and blue channels. Easiest, and most convincing, may be to measure it with appropriate test patterns; in the meanwhile, you can examine this photograph of the display (it looks even nicer in person; photographing a display is remarkably difficult).

Integrated peripherals:

    * Keyboard: 70+ keys, 1.2mm stroke; sealed rubber-membrane key-switch assembly
          o Keyboard Layouts
          o Layout pictures - US International, Thai, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Nigeria

    * Power Management will be critical

BIOS/loader:

    * LinuxBIOS is our BIOS for production units; Open Firmware is used as the bootloader.

Environmental specifications:

    * Temperature: somewhere in between typical laptop requirements and Mil spec; exact values have not been settled
    * Humidity: Similar attitude to temperature. When closed, the unit should seal well enough that children walking to and from school need not fear rainstorms or dust.
