1) nobody knows how to code for them so no real worry of hackers or viruses
2) the school doesn't have to spend time in deciding what to get since there is a small selection available only.
3) the computers are much easier to use for the computer illiterate.
And the list goes on..

LOL
I remember my school's computers. They were the lousiest PCs and people would mess them up really bad. Well, I showed the computer teacher some protection and he made me admin

A lot of schools have mac's because they can get them at a very low educational price or even for free. My one school used to have this program called "apples for the students" where you collected grocery store reciepts and earned free mac stuff for your school. They're hoping that if the kids are learning on macs then they'll keep using them and buy them later in life.

And yet again a beautiful example of an utterly useless post changing into a serious message thread.

My school has a Mac lab, 2 PC labs, and an apple lab (technically, a teacher salvaged the schools apple's years ago because he made quite a few programs for them). I've used the Mac lab once to play Odell Down Under for science (we were doing some ocean stuff in biology)

Stop bragging. Please. Or, conversely, send one of those PC labs to my school via helicopter or something.
