Hello,

Sorry Urs, we don't "speak..es" Apple..lian here! It's sort of like Latin,
its influences are still observed but as a language it is indeed dead. Some
academicians understand it and try to teach it, but the masses refuse use
it. No native speakers of this language have been born for quite a long
time.

Cheers,

Ramon O. Torres-Isea

Roger,

Buy a bunch of i-Macs, they will be very cheap for educational use. They
are all in one and even have a handle to carry them around, although they
are of course not really laptops. Best of all, nobody wants them, because
they think PeeCees are better.... and even better than that...they are
secretly indeed better by saving you so much time to set them up, maintain
them and manage a whole net connected pool. Use net boot unedr MacOS-X or
at least the ANAT (Apple Network Assistant) to manage a whole farm of
i-Macs at once.

This was just a little Apple commercial from a convinced guy on the other
side of the Atlantic ocean.

Cheers and all the best

Urs
