for laptops for high school kids, the current ibook is durable enough

but for junior high and elementary school kids, give them a clamshell ibook with spillproof keypad and extra thick plastic layer over lcd screen

to cut costs down, put in slower processor that's in current ibook and have only one usb port and less bundled software, and smaller hard drive

I know! Bring back the eMate 300 (http://applemuseum.bott.org/sections/computers/e300.html)!

I've got two of them and they still run fine. I've carried an iBook around and they are pretty tough, but the clamshell eMate was really rugged, and I know kids who loved them.
