Computer Hardware

> One of the great aspects of educational blogging is that the computing power needed to participate is actually very low--meaning at the very time that we are likely to conclude that we really do need a computer for every student in school, we should now be able to afford them. Current estimates are that close to 100,000 computers are obsoleted in the US every day, less than 5% of which get reused here in this country, but the great majority of which are fully capable of running Web 2.0 applications. [Authorized Computer Refurbishers] [[17]] - a website selling refurbished Dell computers to schools. A Microsoft Authorized Refurbisher, providing legal Windows licenses on the computers. [[18]] - Software to convert older Intel-based computers (PII or better) into no-maintenance "webstations." Great for blogging, wiki, podcasting, and research stations.
