interesting. I think we might start seeing more of these devices mainly because this is basically what the Atrix does. Still too slow and limited for me to use on any sort of normal/semi normal basis. Neat idea though

It's about time Linux made a real breakthrough on the education scene. Maybe someday Microsoft will actually have some competition in the PC market.

Pretty cool if you ask me. As far as the cost of an LCD goes.... it's an HDMI output so the question to ask is how many households (in the western world) have tvs, and how many of those tvs are new enough to have an hdmi connection.
