Laptop Mag EEE / XO comparisonLaptop Mag has a comparative article, pitching the XO laptop (the device in the OLPC project) against the EEE. Overall, the article concludes with the EEE as the winner, although the XO triumphed in the design, price and connectivity departments – the mesh networking functionality does look rather good, but, not at the expense of a machine which reminds me of ET… However, the XO was not designed for someone sitting in an office*, whereas the EEE would easily fit into this environment.

While the XO and the Eee PC 701 were designed for different purposes, when comparing the elements that are common to both, the Eee PC 701 provides a better computing experience for the money.

*Other than perhaps the offices of the Early Learning Centre, I guess.
