    Honestly, you can draw mind maps, doodle, etc. on the tablet. Not limited... However, as my school is a boy's school, I guess we can't help but play games on the Tablet, while lessons are conducted. I myself have done that once, others more. I do however, vouch that all schools switch to the Tablet. I believe it is pretty interactive, BUT, under one of the keypoints which they mentioned- Less books, lighter bag, isn't really true. The freaking tablet weighs ~2.8-3 odd KG. Killing my bag and my back!

    I think household income need to be below a certain level, or there are many dependents in the household...case to case basis.
