    Indeed. Pegatron also makes the EXOPC Slate and a few other Windows 7 slates. They also manufacture the IPad.

    I preordered the EXOPC slate, so I will find out in the next two weeks (ships the 18th of this month) how they compare to an ITampon/Ipad.

    But really for a school IPAd maybe not option (think 20 apple store accounts, downloading 20 apps each time and education software that will not run on IPAD OS)

    You can do more with the RM slate than the iPad.

    Yeah.. agreed in principle (we don't have lots of these in people's hands and known to be working yet).

    My point is more Exec Tech Toy (a category they obviously both match), versus Useful Educational Tool for kids. I want more than techs saying gadget X is cool and trendy, I want to hear about real benefits for educating kids.

    Right off top of my head class collaboration so if have something like Tutor on it then teacher can remote to device show it on projector.

    Device can be passed around the room.

    An Idea group class brain storming. Working in some groups on topic maybe a project to do with fairground one group working on marketing, one group on staffing costs and one group on refreshment stands. If something that needs to be discussed at end of lesson style meeting with every one the device is passed around a discussion brain storm is created. Then this can be used for decide for the agenda.

    That is from my head it is all about detaching person away from the workstation...

    Does anyone know what the docking station has - VGA out and a DVD drive? Could the slate drive a projector?
