Damn. :mad: I wish they had something like this when I went to school. That's great. But I wonder who is responsible for repairs if they breakdown, they're lost or stolen :confused:

g4cubed: I totally agree with you. It would have been nice... in the 21st century you will see kids running around with gadgets, that we could only dream about a few years ago.

I believe that the laptops come with some type of a warranty, or special service program, that could cover some hardware failures.

I actually had something like this when I went to school.

When I was in middle school, around 1991 I think, our 6th and 7th grade curriculum, everything revolved around testing a new mac thing called Mac Csile.

Direct from apple we had a computer for every student, and instead of having normal classes we worked as teams over this network on projects much like thesis, it was really interesting at the time, and apparently we were beta testing a bunch of stuff for apple. However it was 2 of the most unproductive years of my education.

Weird huh? I feel like I was part of a government experiment ;-)

Anyone ever heard of Mac Csile, I think we might have been the only ones.
