What do you think you could do with this?
In was just looking around the RM site and saw this RM.com Shop: miniBus & miniBook [30 Units] Special Offer Bundle
What does everybody think of these within a school?
I'd love to give them a go but we have RM CC3 at the moment so I would have to add £50 extra per machine just for the privilege of running them on my network.
The other problem I can see is they are so small one could easily fall in to my packed lunch box and I might take it home by mistake

I took one look at your post and thought, "Since when do RM provide minibuses??"
I'm just not with it today.

Their just the Asus eeePC's. If you do a search on the forums you will find a lot of posts about them. I think I remember a post yeterday and a lot of people mention they are using them by staff for attendance use.

I don't think you can use easylink without internet explorer? I could be wrong. It's a good idea though.

If you want to stay with the builtin OS without moving to windows you can use konqueror as a replacement for IE. It can open natively sites made for IE only.
Otherwise wine and ies4linux should do the job!
