    1Gb RAM
    80Gb Solid State HDD
    Touchscreen
    Waterproof (so waterproof it went in a bucket of water)
    Toughened screen

    etc etc

    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?

    Nope, cos there isn't one!

    Its touchscreen finger or digitiser pen (type or handwrite) or anything not too sharp really!

    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!

    So does that mean it will withstand heavy input from a ham fisted student with a biro?

    If so does that mean that because of its robustness users have to hit the screen with a little more effort than a normal touch screen?

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