I managed to have a shot of Dave's Ameo at eLive last month.

I found it off balance to use when not on a desk.   I would want to use it (and I think kids would be the same) while watching telly on the sofa or sitting on the bus.  My instinct was to seperate the keyboard from the screen and prop up the screen up somewhere while leaning back and relax while typing.  If only this worked but it needs a physical connection.  It would be perfect if the keyboard also worked over bluetooth.
