    "only problem we have is kids switching the wireless off via the button on the front."

    Can you disable the wireless button in the BIOS?

    this may have some useful info to give to anyone thinking of using wireless in school

    That RM jobby that was supposedly driven over by cars, tanks and what not is rather very good.

    The main issues I come up with in primary schools, is the teachers.

    "I can't get network on laptops 3, 5 and 19"
    *flicks the wifi switch on*
    "I did that several times!"

    I would also suggest purchasing spare keyboards at the time of buying the new laptops though purely for the sake of the keys. Ebay is a great resource for that though

    It's amazing just how slow even the better core2 hardware gets when it's chocka with programs, especially on CC3/4 networks
