HSC will be purchasing Acer Aspire 1830T.

Edustar image will be including tutorials on how to use applications.
It will also include Premiere.

It might be a good idea to run a boot camp with the groups of students when the net books are being deployed.

Once school created a tech squad to help out with some of the technical demands.

Parents and students are not allowed to pay for the cost of using the net book.
However principals can charge for misuse of broken / misused net books.

What may constitute misuse?
- Not taking a netback home in case
- Leaving a net book unattended / locked away
