  1. One Laptop Per Child! Well done. Can’t wait til hear how you like it. I really went back and forth on this one and decided to sit this round out and jump in next time. The prototype had a hand-cranked power supply, which they dropped for this iteration. When they put it back, or offer some kind of non-grid based power generation, I’ll jump on it for sure.

  2. Actually, there are several options for non-grid power generation, including a foot pedal, a yo-yo charger, and, of course, solar panels. Those haven’t been released to the G1G1 people yet, but according to Potenco (manufacturer of the yo-yo charger), they should be available in the states in a few months. There are also numerous solar panel charger options for it (along with small electronics like cell phones) that are readily available already.
