Maine laptop program

Apple is in negotiations with Maine's Education department --currently for middle schoolers--to all high schoolers in the state at a cost of about $300 per student per year, which includes insurance, wireless networks, support and professional development, according to the Associated Press: " Against a backdrop of budget turmoil, Education Commissioner Susan Gendron's proposal would free lawmakers from new spending this year while getting wireless infrastructure in place and 22,000 laptops in the hands of ninth graders, teachers and administrators next fall."

    How about a store

    It's always seemed absurd that Apple doesn't have a store in Maine, a state where they have a contract to provide 25,000 laptops to 7th graders. In order for me to get my mac fix I need to drive to the Apple store in Peabody, Mass. Apple? Hello? Do any of the people in education speak to people in the retail chain?
