"We’ve known for a while that Intel was working a touch-enabled reference design for their new Classmate PCs. It wasn’t until I had an opportunity this week to speak with some of the folks working on the project at Intel that I realized just how far this product had come.
Launched today at CES, the “Convertible Classmate PC” seems remarkably close to what tablet PCs really should be for education. Tablets always seemed like a great idea for students, but they never took off, largely because of their high cost, limited availability, and limited durability. The convertible Classmate addresses all of these concerns;"

It is an up and coming topic.
