Voice activation is too expensive, but you hate typing. No problem. The tablet, from Microtech, has a handwriting processor chip and screen receptor that allows you to write directly onto the screen. The same "stylus" (which can be replaced by any semi-pointed object if lost) that uses the screen can also be used to select menu choices, like a mouse. Can be connected to computers for upload/download of data or for handwrittend input. Holds 50 gigabytes worth of documents.

Interstellar Computer Enterprizes, or "ICE" as it's come to be known, is the premier supplier for computer equipment throughout the American Arm. Using the DarElex family of processors and BIOS chips, as well as plastics produced in Zion County, Ellis and metals mined on both King colonies, "ICEboxes," as they're affectionately known by satisfied consumers have become much a part of American and Australian colonial culture as Morningstar Wines, Mule-Apache tractors and Botany Bay paper.
Using standardized designs, "ICEboxes" are assembled at factories on each of the American Arm colony worlds save Kingsland, and a factory was recently opened at Kellyston, New Canberra, Tirane. Capable of using all ISO 13000-standard operating systems and datachips, ICEbox users appreciate the flexibility and ruggedness of the designs. Models assembled on King for Mayflower's and Huntsland's citizens have proven to be better able to withstand the extreme conditions of that world better than any other comparable locally-produced or imported model.(However, ICE does not recommend taking ICEboxes built elsewhere to King without the proper modifications. These modifications can be had at a reasonable cost from any authorized ICE service center.)

Parents and children both enjoy the eas of use and interoperability of their ICEboxes provided or supported by their respective school systems and the primary computers used int he home. In the American Arm, these home units are also likely to be ICEboxes. So, whether your child is remotely educated by the Darwin Library of Botany Bay, El-Ed's

MicroSchool Network on Ellis, or Kingsland's School of the Air, you can be assured that your childs ICEbox will become the most valuable tool they use. Indeed the ICEbox 9K is Darwin Library's standard issue computer, and the basis of El-Ed's MicroSchool Network's applicationstandards.

Purchasers of ICEboxes also have the option of upgrade subscription. Why throw away a perfectly good computer just because it's obsolete? Icebox upgrade subscribers need only take their computer to any ICE authorized service center for all appropriate upgrades to ensure their hardware remains compliant to the ISO standards applicable for that time. Also, during the upgrade a friendly ICEbox technician will assist you in determining your optimal software needs. ICE proudly offers software from Bonneville Software of Ellis, Ellis DataTech, and OutWorlds Software of Botany Bay.
