OSNews, Generic OSes "When it comes to computers, the average person usually believes that 'newer is better'. After all, you can get more memory, a faster processor, and a larger hard disk, merely by waiting a few months. Old hardware is usually shunned as being of little value. In contrast, the elementary education sector has consistently found traditional educational methods to be superior to the newest, latest, and greatest methods. Some of the most knowledgeable and capable children are produced by the schools that use seemingly antiquated techniques. So what happens when the world of technology collides with the world of education? Why, the Commodore 64 makes a comeback!"

C64 micro tower

This guy should look at the c64 micro tower ( http://www.64hdd.com/projects/hardware/c64-dtv64.html )
No need to build it into a keyboard - you can carry it in your pocket ( 100 x 55 x 30mm ) and attach to any ps/2 keyboard. Cheap, small and able to use commodity hardware !

Having cut my teeth on a c64 both at home and at school when I was young I absolutely love the idea of using them as educational machines (again).

I was going to post that link. You beat me to it! I'd use one of those towers in a heartbeat.
