    How is Apple's edu market share going?

    200?

    Is this really news worthy?

    I like to know when big purchases are made (1000 iBooks, 900 PowerBooks etc.), and I obviously love Apple, but 200 eMacs, in my humble opinion, isn't all that amazing or interesting. My local high school just purchases 120 eMacs and it didn't even make the local papers.

    This doesn't say "hey, The Mac is making a comeback" it says "hey, --SOME-- people are still using the Mac!"

    Mac Edu. sales are doing OK. Dell now has their hooks into some schools, and the admin says "what is business using... oh, then lets buy that"

    It is good news

    Given how many Microsoft-centered school boards are blowing out Apple from their schools (all around me in this area of CT), it is good news. The news article indicates those 200 eMacs are just the start of the two year project to provide advanced training for the educators. Those 200 systems must have cost less than $200K out of the $900K grant...

    RE: It is good news

    Much of that money is going to go for things like wireless technologies, training, printers, networking, projectors, insurance... Really, 900K seems like a ton, but it isn't. They also need that money to keep the things going for years...
