Heavy Duty. The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) is going to be available for purchase in the US in November. David Pogue of the New York Times recently reviewed the machine, and his demonstrations of the beating that the PC could take made us wonder...wouldn't this be the perfect kitchen computer?
Instead of overpriced PCs, why not use something designed to withstand rugged environments. With its durable casing, it could take on any kitchen spill or accidental drop on the floor.
Sure, it won't have all the bells and whistles of a high-end laptop, but for cooking, family scheduling, and general household duties the OLPC might be the perfect fit.
