| The XO batteries do not work on normal laptops, which can sap up to 40 watts 
| of power depending on usage, Jepsen said. 
| The XO is also the first laptop that uses only alternative energy, Jepsen 
| said. Low-cost solar panels are great as a power option where there is plenty 
| of sunlight, Jepsen said. Energy is especially scare in developing nations, 
| so the laptop will hopefully pass on energy preservation lessons, which could 
| help preserve battery life in the XO, Jepsen said.
