Mass production of XO laptops kicks off

One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization launched in 2005 by MIT professor Nicholas Negroponte to design, manufacture and distribute affordable laptop computers to children around the world, announced that mass production of the XO laptop computer began on November 6 at Quanta Computer's manufacturing facility in Changshu, China.

Taiwan-based Quanta Computer has recently doubled its manufacturing capacity, in part to prepare for the production of the XO laptop from OLPC. On November 6, Quanta kicked off mass production in its new Changshu manufacturing center, two hours northwest of Shanghai. XO laptop unit volumes will ramp up over time, leveraging the newly available capacity in the Changshu plant, according to OLPC.
