RE: [K12OSN] $169 computer

I know this defeats the purpose of a terminal, but wouldn't having a
really really really small hard drive with the netboot information do
the job?

This way they can't take it out, they can't swap it (easily)... Just my
two cents.

As far as I know it isn't much trouble to put etherboot on a CD if PXE 
available.  Would no floppy be a problem if CD etherboot is possible?

The question I would have is "Do I have access to the CD drive, can I 
change out the
CD or is the CD drive hermetically sealed inside the case?".

1) I couldn't really tell from the enlarged picture, and
2) It isn't listed in the "features" section on that web page.

It sounds like an interesting unit if it would support LTSP.
