Indiana High School Students Must Go Netbooks

studennetbookSchool might be out for the summer but students attending Indiana’ s Evansville-Vanderburgh School Corporation high school have something to look forward to when then get back to the classroom, HP Mini 2140 netbooks! As reported by Indiana’s NBC affiliate WFIE, the high school will be starting a one to one laptop program for the entire high school:

In addition to the annual textbook fee, there will now be a $35 per semester ($70 a year) rental fee for the laptops, or netbooks.  Starting this school year, all high school students will be required to rent one.

All high school students will be required to rent an HP Mini 2140 this fall.  And talk about a lot of netbooks: The EVSC has ordered 7,200 of them. The Mini 2140 will work on the school’s wireless network. But the poor kids won’t be able to access sites like Facebook. The HP Mini 2140 is a solid choice for students considering it should be able to withstand a beating in a backpack with its hard drive protection and run for a good amount of time without being recharged. Like other one-on-one laptop programs, students will be given a netbook and will use the same one until they graduate.  If the netbook is damaged, it’s up to the students to pay for the repairs or to replace it.
