if apple evntually goes to a g4 based ibook, do you think apple should keep a g3 ibook for under $1,000 dollars and have a low cost laptop?
i probably see that happening and due to schools and their often limited budgets, that is not a bad ideaOriginally posted by Quark
I think that it would be a good idea only if they included a flat-panel.... uh... whooops!... Wrong Thread....
Apple already has that in mind. They will keep the G3 iBooks with the smaller screens for schools. Just like the G3 iMacs.
They will distinguish between the G3 and the G4 iBooks with the screen size - and maybe color.
They need to keep the low-cost G3s around for schools to purchase and use. They are perfectly good for that - and the audio/video departments of a school, will be able to buy the low-cost iBook G4s with the larger screen.
I wouldn't worry too much about California's public education falling to much further behind....Louisiana is settled somewhere down in the bottom...which is why I went to private schools...Originally posted by jefhatfield

i have one fear though...at least in california, where we are falling further and further behind other states in public education, i would like to see our students get the best/newest stuff that is available

I still like the iPad idea for schools.
Maybe...that is why Apple made Remote Desktop! Hehehe, I wish I had an iPad!Originally posted by me hate windows
The iPad would be perfect.
Have a 10" screen on it, and have it be a tablet thingy. Instead of hauling lots of heavy books around, they could just be on one of those Toshiba thin drives that are in the iPod, except it is in the iPad. And it would all be connected with AirPort, so the teacher could spy on kids work And they could just be connected to the teachers computer, and when the teacher wanted homework, he/she could suck it off the iPad and not even grade it(computer does it for them) The iPad could change a lot for schools.
