I just read the article, Apple planning to make original TV shows and movies as hardware sales soften. I decided to try and remember what I used to be able to buy for the school/classroom from Apple. Here is my list:

  1. Laptops designed for children
    ibook_flavors
  2. Powerful and Extensible Workstations
    apple-876298_640
  3. Servers with easy to use Management Tools, Media Streaming, and Podcasting
  4. Easy to obtain full sized keyboards

My concern is real. I am an Apple and Lenovo owner. My Lenovo experience has only improved in the last 6-7 years, while my Apple experience has gotten worse. Am I the only one who agrees that iPhones and watches do not equal creation and learning?

I am hoping for a turn around. Sales of hardware are down. Schools tend to buy in massive quantities. #SalesTiptoApple

Schools also like to by integrated packages of computers, devices, accessories, support, and software. #SalesTiptoApple

One Response to Apple in the Classroom, What’s Next on the Chopping Block?

  1. Xserve was by far the best server in town. That whole package of Server Management tools that came with the OSX Server series made life so simpler and the service so robust. One of those decisions of Apple that continues to baffle me, when they decided to discontinue the product!
