The XO laptop transforms into an ebook.
Begin by positioning the screen vertically (at a right angle to the base).
Rotate the display until the screen is facing away from the keyboard. You can "close" the XO this way, so it is flat.
The game pad buttons can be used to scroll through ebooks..
To maximize battery life, turn the backlight off by pressing the lower-brightness key 4–5 times before entering ebook mode. To restore the backlight, press the raise-brightness key 4–5 times.
