In australia this year all students in year 9 and up get a free laptop. now i know a fair whack about computers having two technicians for parents and i can see so many problems about this right away http://www.oztion.com.au/Community/topic.aspx?t=news&tid=301403
go there and see the story but i know its going to backfire somehow. but theres just all these issues raised by it. know im happy to get it. ITS A FREE LAPTOP but there supposidley spending 2500 a student (the eact amout is in the link) but theyre calling them mini's. i dont think it will be one of the eee pc smart book things but they could be **** who knows.

Every NSW public school student in years 9 to 12 will get a laptop they can keep when they leave school

Why doesnt the federal gov come in, standardise the ****ing board of education first before they give you kids what is basically easy access porn.

I don't think this is in Queensland? Not that I care anyway, I've finished school.

But last year, the Rudd government in its infinite wisdom gave free computers to three schools in my city, ALL of them were rich private schools. There are so many state schools that would have benefited from those computers, but no, the government screwed that up royally.

i agree.
what the hell is rudd thinking with all of these things he's got going.

howard managed to build up a huge surplus which would have been able to see us through the economic crisis, but rudd is too busy spending billions censoring the internet, and giving kids free computers.

WHAT THE HELL!

RUDD, JUST KEEP THE ****ING MONEY, AND USE IT ON SOMETHING WORTHWHILE!

something similar goes on each year in my hometown, except it's only for those who are graduating seniors. you get it at the beginning of your last year of school, so i don't know what happens for those that drop out. it's supposed to be an incentive to stay in. a local hospital is paying for it, i think.

i missed it by a couple of years
