There is a cart, for moving the laptops to and from classrooms.
It has shaped holes for the laptops. It supplies enough power
to charge 32 laptops from a 15 amp circuit.
There is software for the teacher (using Windows) to monitor
all the students.
There is no hinge to break. If the laptop hits the floor
face-down on top of an object, the screen is protected.
The GUI and apps are superior, at least from the viewpoint of
a school system. You get an Excel-compatible spreadsheet,
a Word-compatible word processor, Tux Paint, Flash player, and a
desktop that hasn't been inspired to the point of unusability.
There will be a cart or two for the whole school to share.
