Hi Pedro,
Maybe I can help you narrow it down. But, first I will need to know a little bit about your proposed research project. 
Will you be working with your own students or others? Will you be both teacher and investigator? What is the age/grade and grade of the students who will be using Sugar? What does your research design look like?  Do you plan to do a survey, pre-test/post-test with control and experimental groups, a combination of both or something else? Will you be using XOs or SOAS (Sugar On A Stick)? Will students have access to Sugar outside the classroom?What subjects do you plan to concentrate on?

> The main target audience for the XO laptop and Sugar is primary school, grades 1-6. Younger children will have difficulty using a computer. Many of Sugar's Activities are usable by older children, I think Sugar still quite suitable for grades 7-8. Older children may find the Sugar desktop restrictive and want to use the Gnome desktop for some tasks such as access to the underlying file system.
> Children in grades 5-6 are probably the most productive, the desire to experiment and create seems to peak around these years.
