I've actually thought about buying a couple for work. We're working on a few projects where a compute stick would be ideal, like print release stations. The biggest down side is that the students would steal them as there doesn't appear to be a way to secure them.

it has a security notch on it. so it can be secured.
or you could put it in a lock box and run HDMI extension cable to it, right?
but I can see why you might not want the students to mess with it.

Why not ask Intel to send you one to review?

Oooh.. I didn't see that security notch. If I have to put it in a lock box, I might as well get a small form factor PC. That way I'd at least get things like ethernet as well.

I'd ask Intel if I had some contacts over there...
