This device has a high-resolution, easy-to-read screen that functions even under direct sunlight. The said laptop also runs open and free software known as Sugar. Anyone is allowed to copy, run, study, distribute, alter, and enhance.

The succeeding versions of XO will be called XO 1.5, XO 1.75, and XO 3.0. The XO 1.5 will carry the first version’s industrial design but it will be outfitted with a VIA processor and will deliver 2x the speed, 4x DRAM, and 4x FLASH memory. It will operate both on Windows and Linux operating systems. The XO 1.75 will also come with the same design but will be rubber-bumpered on the outside. Inside, it will feature an 8.9 inches touch screen display and it will be equipped with an ARM processor. The XO 3.0, on the other hand, will have a new design, which will make use of a single sheet of flexible plastic that’s design to be unbreakable.
