As Rob said, the eBox-2300 is a bit underpowered for the edutainment software; 
it's okay for the office apps, but if you're going to be supporting kids, I 
think they'll find it frustrating.  Instead, you might look for the eBox-4300 
which has, if memory serves, a 500Mhz processor, compared to the 2300's 200Mhz 
processor.  It comes in the same size case, perfect for mounting on the back of 
an LCD monitor, but it also costs twice as much, ~$230 compared to the 2300's 
~$110.  I think the Devon 6020 series start under $200.
