Amazon to Sell OLPC in November, Including Dual-Boot XP Model

Illustration for article titled Amazon to Sell OLPC in November, Including Dual-Boot XP Model

From November you'll be able to buy the OLPC in its classic "buy one for the price of two" offer from Amazon, which should be a smoother way of distributing the device than when the OLPC was originally on sale from the source. This new Give 1 Get 1 program will also cover the Windows XP version, now that Microsoft have finalized it, as well as the Sugar OS version. One thing remains unknown: pricing. The previous G1G1 program went to US residents for $398, but maybe this time it'll be a little closer to the fabled $100 price tag. [Electronista and BBC]

I hope these boot faster. But with Windows XP, I am doubting it.

Mine runs the default OS and it takes more than a minute to boot which is why I stopped using it. (The battery life is bad. So I don't leave it on sleep).
