Mobile is a technology that shows a lot of progress in humanity.
OF COURSE. They are very useful and cool!!!
There are advantages and even disadvantages in using them.
WELL...........the disadvantages can be reduced but that depends on us.

COMMENTS ON TURTLE ART:
It is like a scratch but a bit advanced.
EVERYTHING HAS SOME NEGATIVE POINT!!!
If we open any file, it saves even if it is a blank document.
It should only save when we want.
Then, we have to open up the journal and erase it.
We can work on shades and background color in a more better way.
I like XO but its a bit complicated and of course for chidren and students under 12 years of age.
It is portable and easy to use. There are many different activities that help in different manner.
It is unbreakable and water-proof.
We can even save our planning and lessons that we do everyday, take videos and images very easily.
I like some activities in XO that are not to be found in a normal computer.
I even like chat, turtle art, puzzle type games etc.
I am confused with terminal because there are so many small tags and symbols that they are difficult to remember. I still can't understand a bit how to change icons in XO laptop. I think XO is a bit slow. It needs to be fast and accurate nowadays. New accurate technologies are existing now. If it wo'nt be fast and a bit modern, it will be behind (in technology) in future.
Both the XO laptop and the Classmate PC provide unique advantages that are worthy of consideration. With a more powerful processor, more memory, and support for unmodified Windows and Linux software, the Classmate PC provides schools with more choices and greater flexibility. OLPC's XO laptop offers a better price, a more cohesive and well-integrated software platform, and special features like a built-in video camera, high-resolution dual-mode screen, longer battery life, and pull-string charging.
Although the advantages of more powerful hardware seem apparent to the average computer user, a faster processor isn't necessarily of great value for an education laptop destined for use in the classroom. If Intel can keep the cost of the Classmate PC below $300 and can offer it with a robust assortment of useful applications that make use of the hardware's potential, it may prove a better value for some countries.
On the other hand, OLPC's XO laptop is very functional despite its hardware limitations and can probably provide all that students and teachers in target countries need for only $140. Regardless of which product achieves greater adoption, the availability of competing mobile computing devices designed specifically for education in emerging markets is a promising sign of things to come. As technological innovations continue to make hardware more powerful and affordable, computers could transform the way that students learn and make technology more pervasive and accessible to people in developing countries.
But I still like to play with XO (the cute laptop)!!!
