"The XO-1.75 is the first OLPC laptop to use chips based on processor technology from Arm Holdings, which has been a huge factor in reducing power on the laptop, McNierney said. The previous XO used an x86-based microprocessor, the kind made by Intel, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and Via Technologies.

"Using Arm-based chips halved power consumption to just 2-watts, he said.

"The upcoming OLPC tablet, the XO-3, will come out in 2012 and use just 1-watt of power, he said."
