Classmate PC

Goodness me it has been a long time since I posted anything. I have been so busy in my new job that I haven't had the time. But today I couldn't pass up this opportunity to test a piece of equipment and blog about it at the same time. I am typing this on a Classmmate PC. This is sort of like an ASUS EEE or the OLPC computer that has been all in the blogoworld. I've taken a couple of photos so you can see what they are like.

This could be a really useful tool. I want to play with it for awhile but if anyone has any experience with these or any feedback I'd love to hear from you. It is running winXP and has a 30 GB hard drive. 512 mb Ram could be limiting and I'm not sure if it is upgradeable. Built in wireless took me a couple of minutes to get connected on my home network. Also has ethernet port and two usb ports. Headphone and mic input but that is all. I'm no touch typist but the small keys are not too bad. You wouldn't want to be typing a lot on it but then mostly we don't type screeds of stuff.

I will attempt to get back to blogging soonish. At the moment I am enhjoying the challenge of Team teaching with two others a class of 70 fantastic year 7 and 8 pupils.
