Eight XO laptops being carried to Maseru

Maureen Powell, of the American International School in Maseru, and her husband have agreed to carry eight of our XO laptops over to Maseru in their carry-on luggage when they fly to Lesotho in early August. We'll have to pay for the domestic postage to Atlanta, but it will save us a bundle on the international shipping. Thanks Maureen!!!

I'll get the laptops charged up today and put them in the mail the next time I go to town, hopefully tomorrow.

And if you know of anyone else flying to Lesotho who might be willing to carry a laptop or two, please ask them to get in touch with me.

  1. I've gotten delayed getting these out. Being so far from town does sometimes have its drawbacks.

    The 8 laptops have been reflashed, cleaned, and photographed. Now I just need to finish engraving them with ID codes, and they'll be ready to go.

  2. The 8 XOs went in the mail Saturday, 24 July.

    The cost of domestic shipping was $30 for about 30 pounds, not including insurance and delivery confirmation. To send them all the way to Lesotho would have cost about $125, a savings of nearly $100. THANK YOU, Maureen!
