    Any word on when/if these will be commercially available? Would help them recoup costs!

    Interesting that there has been no mention of price or release date. Don't even know where they're made...

    Hoping that one appears for my Y7 daughter next term, I think I'll be more interested than her :D

    Patience required all round

    Scanned over the article and it doesn't mention the fact that Barclays are funding the give away of these units to the year seven pupils. When I get into work, I'll give you an indication of cost price...

    Ooh, please do - thus far nobody's been willing to talk specific figures.
