This is the website for The Mid-Michigan XO Laptop Lending Library. Mid-Michigan is a band across the state with the south edge defined by Detroit and the north edge defined by Mount Pleasant. This encompasses the major state universities.
If you have a short term need for an OLPC XO Laptop, the Library has XO's for short term lending. This may be just to learn about the XO, to develop sofware for the XO, or anything between. These are available without charge or with a small shipping charge.
The Library has up to 10 XO-1 to loan (less number on loan) and four XO-1.5 (less number on loan). Each is virtually new and can be loaded with any of the OLPC Sugar versions: original (build 650), 8.2.1 (build 767 / 802), 10.1.3, or 11.3.0, 11.3.1, 12.1.0 .
A few XO's are available for loan to anywhere in the continental U.S. .
