Laptops in Milo Schools

I just read this article on the Bangor Daily News: Milo-area schools get 174 MacBook computers

One thing about this bothers me 🙁  They got MacBook Air laptops.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love macs, I’m a mac-user myself.  But I’ve had to deal with MacBook Airs at work, and I think schools are the WORST place for them.  They’re very easily broken, and just a simple screen replacement can cost over $700.  Those things are gonna get broken quick, and cost a small fortune to keep running.

What does everyone else think?

  1. I recall one area high school had massive costs. One reason was that instead of replacing, they were repairing.
