$20 less per unit than their high school contract... does this include software with an antivirus subscription good for the duration the student will use it? Or are these things so locked down the students can only do the teacher-approved actions?

It's one thing taking care of WinXP desktops for a small office of adults, but whole schools of middle students with windows-based laptops? I'm NOT applying for that job.

Yeah that would be pretty crazy. Kids are pretty inovative they will find ways to get past the protection software and get games(and viruses as well) on there laptops.
