Its a VIA (x86) processor. The board is a bit more crowded than the
XO1 board, but this revision has proc, mem, storage, at approx *4 the
first one at approx the same cost. Storage is actually microSD, so its
upgradeable. http://wiki.laptop.org/images/f/f0/XO_1.5_B1_Annotated_Motherboard.png

Right now the concern is to keep the power consumption low, near the
XO1 specs. If any of you are qualified to do that kind of work, please
join the OLPC lists (devel list at http://lists.laptop.org) or apply
for a real job :-)
