the poster above has it spot on....no previous experience with Macs and no-one on site that knows how to use them is a bit of a pain in the ar$e when it comes to support and they are going wrong!
I'd like to learn how to, but it simply isnt viable. Due to the resignation of the old Network Manager, I am running the ICT system basically on my own, so I have no free time to get on courses etc.
As for the reasoning for laptops....I said I would much prefer Desktops, but for the rooms they will be used in (normal teaching rooms) there isnt the room for 4/6 desktop machines anywhere in there, so Laptops it is! The media studies class is a 6th form class really, so they should be fairly responsible!! :rolleyes:
Have you looked at the Dell Studios? You can get them with a 2.5 Intel Core 2 Duo, 3 GB RAM and 256 video card for a reasonable price. What i run at home xD
I hadn't actually. Just had a look, and spec'd one up nicely, and it comes to £679. When questioned again, I will mention it!!
