Keeping the convertible for a while

I just got off the phone with the folks at Intel, discussing some of the new features in the convertible Classmate they sent me this weekend. Although it took a while to get to me, they're going to let me hang on to it for a while, periodically sending me image updates with new educational software.

I just got off the phone with the folks at Intel, discussing some of the new features in the convertible Classmate they sent me this weekend. Although it took a while to get to me, they're going to let me hang on to it for a while, periodically sending me image updates with new educational software. The Linux version of the Classmate software stack will also be available this quarter, so hopefully I'll be able to test that out.

Here's the question for you: since I have some time on my side, what would you like to see tested? Intel wants me to put this through its paces. What do you want to know? How can I abuse this incredibly cool little machine?

For my part, aside from the times when I have students testing it, I'm going to make it my primary computer over the next couple of weeks. There is a lot to like about an inexpensive, light tablet. I'll let you know what isn't to like, what works well for adults (and what doesn't), and what the best usage models seem to be for the device. Anything else?
