    Well if you want to see one in next month then come along to EduGeek october Conferance as we will have one for people to play with.

    In fact they are like gold dust at moment so not many of them in UK.

    Yep these look good to run openoffice or the like. Paritularly handy for us as these little laptops could connect to our Terminal Server and give a full wammy interface.

    Veeeeryyyyy interesting. Hope to get one to try soon

    The only downside I can see at present would be a lack of a PCMCIA slot so I could put a wireless card in it? Wonder if they will do a 6 and 9 cell battery could last the entire day then!
