    I wonder how those schools lucky enough to get Dell as their BSF IT partner will fair. Will their IT be “upgraded” or not?

      If even one local authority goes with Dell, I’ll eat my LinkRunner. Too many suppliers undercutting them with cheap crap for them to even get a look in, I would think.
