Spare Motherboard?

It doesn't appear that there is such a thing as a spare motherboard. So how is the XO fully repairable? Harriska2

Some deployments have extra (often) broken laptops on hand for spare parts (including motherboards). They're fully repairable if you have mobos; mobos just aren't sold alone. (I wish they were, but I believe there are some legal/IP/business reasons why they aren't - not too clear on the details though). Mchua 02:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. I ask because it would be feasible to create XO machines but the motherboard is the one that has all the guts on it....Harriska2 14:11, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
