Last night I went up to my son's elementary school to view a Book Fair ...
This is the first thing I noticed when I walked in the door to the library:
This is roughly 40 computer stations. As you can see every one of these computers (Brand New Core2Duo 2.16Ghz DELLs)has a DVD Writer installed. How many K4- 4th Graders are capable of burning a DVD? How many NEED to burn to DVD and could our school district have saved at least $5 per computer if they all just had DVD/CDRW combo drives instead of DVD burners?
I've heard the estimate that Pickens County got 1200 new computers - that would equal $6,000 in savings if it was just $5 per computer.
