A bit over a year ago, I mentioned the XO laptop as a possible gaming tool. Amazon is once again having their Give a Laptop, Get a Laptop offer where you spend $399 and get two XOs – one for yourself and one which is shipped to a child in a developing country.
I didn’t get the XO last year because it runs Linux – and, thus, isn’t going to work with WotC’s Digital Initiative.
Now, I’m not really playing 4e. I’m not currently paying for a DI membership and I don’t plan to. Unfortunately, I just spent about $400 dollars on a desktop PC, and I’m a bit concerned about long-term job security at the moment, so I don’t know that I’ll be able to take advantage of this. It seems really cool, though.
