My new puppy just chewed up my son's charger for his XO laptop. Where can I order a new one? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Also - we just recently got the computer - what are the best programs for a five year old boy?
You can take the computer to Best Buy to get an alternative charger. There are some IBM chargers that have the same adapter from models like Thinkpad 600E, X20 and X40. You have to make sure the outputs are between 11 to 18 volts.
I see a couple of new and used ones on Amazon. Just go to amazon homepage and search for XO laptop charger and you will get a ton (actually only a few) results. It's always better to buy from trustworthy source even if you had to pay a few extra bucks!
You can go for a small yo-yo-like pull-cord charger (one minute of pulling provides 10 minutes of power); so is a $12 solar panel that, although only one foot square, provides enough power to recharge or power the machine.. That is good.. You can also find it at eBay!!
