    Thanks to everyone for their enlightenment. Especially to garethm.. I found the pdf very informative and would love to read your more detailed guide?

    This may sound stupid, but does the Mac Mini plug into the charging trolley to centrally manage the pads or is it just done over the same wifi network?

    Will i need a screen, kb and mouse or just remote onto it?

    Is there any real advantage with a mac mini with server os x as opposed to a non server operating system?

    Couldn't I just use a mac laptop to do the same job.?

    Thanks for all your help and patients with me.. Me is learning fast! :-)

    The Mac mini does plug into the charger (depending on the charger, of course) and either using a remote or a KVM would work.

    Personally, I'd go with the server os as it isn't a huge amount more expensive and will let you get familiar with that side of things - always useful particularly if you may be doing more with macs down the line.

    Thanks. Is that using some sort of a remote desktop app from a Windows pc?. Can I use any type of screen, kb and mouse for the initial setup?

    Think the school want to go with iPad mini's if this makes any difference to any of the above.

    Cheers

    I'd just attach an old keyboard and mouse (USB) to the Mac mini and use any old monitor - the Mac mini will need an HDMI connection but we use an HDMI to VGA converter and attach it to an old monitor.

    If anyone can have a stab at the remaining points, I'd really appreciate it.

    I just ran Apple Configuator on a friend's make, setting up a dummy profile etc. Got a bit more of a feel for it now and quite impressed. Still not too clear on the supervise and assign sections. Does anyone know of a good YouTube video or online guide to show how this works?

    Cheers again
