Alright, we've just written a $2M cheque to Dell and have a truckload of cheap computers... now what? Well I guess we'd better install or upgrade the networks in every school in the city. (Let's just ignore the parents' worries that beaming rf into their children's heads is bad for their health.) Now we'll need either staff or contractors to maintain all this new infrastructure. Don't worry about the laptops, I'm sure the kids will treat them fine and cause no damage not covered by the warranty (If there even is one at this price.)

What about security? You plan on having every child use a laptop with potentially identifying information on inherently insecure wireless networks? Just trying to patch that one up won't be cheap.

Two million indeed.
