    This is great news for Apple. I'm glad it overshadows the bad news, loosing Henrico, that acted as if iBooks were the best thing since teachers.

    I reported on this a couple weeks ago. Clink

    No it's not. Henrico wanted HP first, then pleaded with Apple, who after seeing what happened in the county really didn't push that hard, then Dell came down a lot and they got the deal. FOR MANY MONTHS Apple was #1, but then Dell came in fast. The projects are not identical at all, and anyone who says this really needs to look into the acutal programs, beyond the "Hey! Their giving laptops to students too! THEY MUST BE IDENTICAL!"
