Parent article: OLPC systems available for developers
one of the reasons you prefer to read things on paper is that most video displays have what the print media would consider horrible resolution (and color displays are even worse, with the different colors at different points in space, relying on your eyes to blur them togeather) the fact that the monitor is generating light (and everything accociated with that) just makes it worse.
a good monochrome monitor can be far easier to read then a color one at the same claimed resolution.
the OLPC has a very high resolution monochrome screen that's designed for displaying text and to be easy to read. it's still not as good as a high-quality printed page, but if conventional displays (LCD's) are dot-matrix, the OLPC display is a low-end laser printer
