I'm rather surprised not to see more interest in running Einstein on the
Raspberry Pi.  There are plenty of screen combinations and a wide variety
of interfacing options.

There are some very nice cases for the official Pi 7in touchscreen (for use
the larger Pis) and smaller pen-based displays which can be combined with a
$5 Pi Zero to create devices the size of a Palm Pilot.

Seems like a good match to build a wide variety of custom MessagePad
formfactors running Einstein on Linux (supporting wifi, bluetooth
keyboards, etc.).  This could also help create a general and renewable
hardware platform that's affordable.
