OLPC XO 1.5 lands at FCC

FCC approves OLPC XO 1.5

The saga of the OLPC XO laptop has been long and riddled with disappointment. The machine was first envisioned to be a sub-$100 notebook that could be used in education around the world. The machine ultimately came in at a much higher price than originally envisioned.

The XO 1.5 has turned up over at the FCC in lovely line art form. The machine has already been spied in the wild a few times and the FCC clearance means we should see it here in America soon.

 

The specs that have been rumored so far include a VIA C7-M processor and VX855 chipset capable of 3D graphics and HD video. The price of the machine is unknown as is a launch date; I bet it costs more than a $100.
