We're going to have our humanitarian visit to a school on March 11th in Bangkok, Thailand. 
We have already received a donation of 10 classical guitars from Manuel Rodriguez in Spain, 
the maker of the world's most renowned flamenco guitars... 

Is Tam Tam easy to use for a 10 year old? Does the laptop have in internal microphone that 
could record guitar and/or voice? We have twenty 2-5 minute MIMA Music videos (flash and/or 
mpeg format) about music in different countries around the world. Could we load up these 10 
laptops with this material before shipping them?
