    Is this more uncommon than I suspected? I know the primary school I did 6 months at had per-machine OS licensing but that was because they only had ~50 machines that had been bought in dribs and drabs.

    An EES is an upgrade license so you need to buy a machine with some kind of OS on there. This scheme should make each unit around £50 ish cheaper

    As any one else noticed that Toshiba's Shape the Future range is only on 3rd gen i-cores and not 4th gen? Suggests a rather worrying approach from Toshiba towards schools in my eyes...
