Next XO 'armed' to deliver even lower power consumption benefits

Low power consumption is an essential requirement for developing countries introducing technology into education. This great interview with OLPC Chief Technology Officer Edward J. McNierney introduces the ARM version of OLPC's XO Laptop, the XO 1.75, which will make possible a sub-2 Watt device for the first time:
"OLPC created the Netbook market, now they will push the PC/Laptop industry towards ARM support for lower power consumption and lower prices through increased industry competition and optimized SoC designs. The $100 Laptop is nearer"
