Oh and I got both my OLPC's off Philly Craigslist, unfortunately I haven't seen any more pop up. I know at least one made its way to Seattle craigslist. You could try setting up an automatic email notifier for all craigslists for OLPC, contact the sellers when they pop up and hope they'll ship to you. Otherwise you're kinda stuck with ebay.

I have an OLPC the thing is its definitely pretty slow. It doesnt have much of any sort of office suite and O.O. would certainly run horrendously if you could get it on there in the first place. Batt life is 2-to maybe 3.5 hours abs max. It cant connect to any wireless with more than wep encryption and has no ethernet or modem ports which could be important where you're going. Dont get me wrong, its an amazing machine and I love it- if you put on puppy linux or DSL or Knoppix or you could try Xubuntu then you could get it running abiword if nothing else and it could actually run fairly quickly.
