Never in the history of the laptop program in the school district of Henrico County, Va., have the students' Apple iBooks fallen victim to a fast-spreading virus or worm. The school system will distribute Dell laptops to high school students this year, a change from the past four years with iBooks. That also means a switch from a Macintosh to a Windows operating system that has been more prone to viruses.

And how much more did all the security stuff cost compared to just the cost of an iBook? Talk about wasting taxpayer money.
