Ande, You and I posted at the same time so now I feel compelled to comment again... You are asking really important questions... I have a new Kindle arriving this week and I can't wait...The first thing I thought when I learned about the Kindle is how long will it be before these become the way we do textbooks... We have been moving away from textbook dependent teaching for several years and my staff builds resources around our State standards and many of these resources are electronic... So I like your question...what is a textbook?

We are considering the minis for 1:1 and have played with the eeepc for about a year. I too run it on Linux and find it great for most things. The down side is the screen size on mine which made it very hard to edit presentation slides. The new minis see.m to have solved this problem but I am still torn about the 1:1 usage of minis. I am sort of leaning toward using minis in K-5 and full size in 6-8... but there is a lot to be said about the small foorprint on a student desk. Our students do use a fair amount of simple media apps like photo story, voice thread etc. I would sure love to know what others think. What are the limitations of the mini in the classroom?
