 |-QiMod Ltd.

 makeplaylive is a client.  that is the only association.

 something like that yeah.

 just QiMod Ltd.

 honestly i'd leave it at that... except the educational bit... see later on...

 be positive.  message is in the sentence above.

 ... not the main message.  true, but not the main message.

 don't include that.  be positive.

 treadmill not tredmil.  better to be positive.  included in the
summary sentence above.

 cheep is for birdies.  cheap is the word you're looking for :)
again, incuded in the summary sentence above.

 "alternative to" not "alternative too" - and please don't mention
competing products.

 so something like this implicitly covers the users/developers aspect
as well as the educational one:

 "QiMod Portable Computing Modules bring the benefits of mass-volume
pricing to open educational communities."

 so to _answer_ the question "why should you buy QiMod-designed
products"?  because they're affordable, compact, reuseable long-term
investments masquerading as consumer appliances.

future-proof, you upgrade the computer card, not the whole device, to
make it faster.

 you have two uses of the word "only" in quick succession.  drop this one.
