One thought on “Laptop for a Vagabond”

  1. I am posting this from an OLPC laptop. I love the screen. It is a little hard to type on this particular keyboard because it is in Spanish, but it would be just fine on an English version.

    The web browser supports the usual stuff… Flash.. Javascript.. I really like the swivelling screen.
