Our school is going to give PSPs for everyone, so everyone will have fun when there's nothing to do. *dreaming*
Maybe our school is going to give some umpcs, after 100 years

Man, my school could never afford those.
Plus, the kids here don't really know much.
To get into a Website design class(I'm surprise we have one) a lot of people put: "I myspace a lot." as their experience with computers.

:p

Well...... i would be screwed. I would lose the thing within the first month.

My school could probably afford it... We are probably one of the richest public schools in the US. Look us up (i think we have a wiki page). Roosevelt High School, Seattle WA. We have the best high school jazz band in the nation, and a top 10 drama/theatre program.

My school is in a rich town, I think we might get those next year. They look cooler than my laptop
Posted 6/3/08
haha im on msn with my cousin (who has one) right now.. basically what hes saying is that you get really pissed off with them after while.. and want to start using paper like your used to. But they have a really good drawing program with an oil paint tool

Also he seems annoyed that i said they were poor... theyre not really its just that its a very small school and the only one they can go to. but not poor.

anyway it doesnt really matter how rich your school is because its all government funded they had to be chosen out of thousands of other schools, i dont think others are allowed at the moment .. and theyre looking to put them in most uk schools within the next 10 years .

anyone have any questions by the way? XD lol

Not alot of people on these forums are over 15, yet alone know alot about the subject.
I live in Australia and I know quite a few schools that have done it here (starting years ago). I remember mac had a thing in new zealand when I was in grade 5 for touchscreen computers to replace work books. Theres poor/remote schools in africa and 3rd world countries that use the http://laptop.org laptop. This isn't new or different, just news reporting whatever they can.
