Sounds good what's speculative pricing on it though?
16th January 2009, 01:33 PM #4
Around the £600 mark, depends on what gets added or removed, as in we would want USB ports but unlikely to need the barcode scanner or RFID?

Can they still pull the keys off the keyboard?
16th January 2009, 01:37 PM #6
Nope, cos there isn't one!
Its touchscreen finger or digitiser pen (type or handwrite) or anything not too sharp really!
16th January 2009, 01:39 PM #7
Would it withstand tip-ex on the screen?
(Yes, we've had that done here!)

Well I gave it quite a few hard wacks yesterday no problem, I'd imagine it might scratch with a compass?
As for Tipex, yes i think so, its waterproof and antiseptic proof so just wipe it off with some white sprit!

Blip says 2:46 mins till its finished
16th January 2009, 01:46 PM #14
So does that mean it will withstand heavy input from a ham fisted student with a biro?

I'm not trying to be awkward on purpose - honest!
