This week in laptops

Laptop-related news for the week of March 25.

More tiny laptops, broken OLPCs, and a factory inferno causes a battery shortage. This week's summary is presented in headline format, a favorite of rushed editors worldwide. (Everyone loves a list, right?)

And finally, security researchers win $10,000 for hacking a MacBook Air in two minutes. Nice gig!

Have a great weekend!
