It's fully described as a OLPC XO laptop.  I've got one, and find it
painful to use, although it's got some useful and interesting
features.  I don't have time for that difficulty.

This one shows some possible problems with charging, so I sometimes
had to use plugged in, mostly for the two months I was traveling with
it.  It does attract attention, though.
Make an offer if you're interested in buying it.

   Brings up the question, what is an OLPC? I do a google search and end up
   with "One Laptop Per Child". I don't think that is the proper context.

   Nobody else has a OLPC. From where does one buy them?
