We planned to add 45 netbooks to the arsenal at BISS. After some deliberation and counting pennies, we settled on the ASUS 1005PE. I have teh first one now and am running it through its paces. In the next week, I will test out a few Linux distros aimed at netbooks to see which one is the best as a backup os and intro to Linux for the kids. I am currently downloading Expressgate from ASUS, the new MeeGo 1.0 from Intel/Nokia and Jolicloud which is a slightly tweaked version of Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I will also give Lubuntu a spin. It is fast as anything on the old P3's in our classroom. The grade 5's prefer it to Windows.
I will report back in a few days.
