    For anyone who hasn't read Dos_box's blog post today:

    Tablet computers. An Apology - Blogs - EduGeek.net

    I'm still using a Windows XP RM Tablet PC as my main work computer - I think they make great tools for teachers. Anyone know if RM are doing trade-ins on their new Tablet? Has anyone ordered one yet - we've just had a couple of teachers get iPads, it'd be interesting to see how the two compare.

    It would be interesting to know which SSD and Broadcom Video Accelerator RM's Slate uses (BCM970012 or BCM970015?).

    Btw, the RM, ZooStorm and ExoPC slates all have exactly the same specs which leads me to believe all three are actually made by Pegatron (a.k.a. Asus). There are some good videos of this slate on YouTube too.

    They are, well at least I can vouch for the EXOPC being manufactured by Pegatron. I have mine in hand at the moment. I recieved it about three weeks ago. The SSD in the EXO is a Sandisk P4 (32 or 64GB). According to the diagnostic tool the Crystal HD chip is the 970015. The EXO has a different touch screen installed than the other "slates" that Pegatron manufactures, but beyond that and the SSD of course, it's the same.

    I use mine to keep myself a tad bit more mobile during the day. I have OneNote open and a web browser open to our web based help desk so I can check tickets, and such. The battery life is pathetic when compared to a tablet like an iPad, but it's not an appliciance like the iPad, it's a computer with a full blown OS. I use mine in five to ten minute sessions and let it sleep the rest of the time and that makes it last an entire day without a recharge. So the battery life doesn't much worry me.

    Had a play with one of these today. It was running Windows 7 and performed quite well, would be interesting to see how they performed when built onto a CC4 network.

    got one as a trial for school last week. dissapointing.touch screen was tricky to use, frustratingly so really. up against an ipad for same trial duration and have been using the ipad more and more - completly turning expectations of two devices on head.
    rm felt like an unfinished job. Have been 'anti-apple' for ages but am now seeing what people are on about (for this particular test).

    We had one as a trial. The trial length was a month but I returned it within a week. In it's un"RM'd" state, we connected it to the wireless and started playing but found that it kept freezing/stuttering for 30 seconds at a time. Woefully underpowered (has the same Atom CPU as the RM Mini's) and as we were playing with it, realised that what actual use was there for it? We initially thought the teacher could use it for SIMS and projecting, class room collaboration, but at 400 a pop, we couldn't trust the students to treat it with respect. Our HoD for ICT came to the same conclusion.

    Even if it became cheaper and more powerful, I still think we'd rather put the money elsewhere!
