Kerala arms its teachers with laptops, netbooks at compelling prices

The IT@School Project of Government of Kerala has launched a programme to provide laptops and netbooks to 50,000 teachers in the State, at almost a third of market rates, thanks to a bulk deal. The Project had earlier negociated for the procurement of 10,000 laptops and 18,000 netbooks under its ICT scheme for schools through a national tendering process undertaken by its service provider KELTRON.
Teachers will now benefit from the rates achieved through this process -- Rs 17,770 for a laptop (including 3-year warranty which includes the battery and power adapter) and a netbook at Rs 11,450.
The Laptops are powered with processors ranging from Celeron M 900 to Pentium Dual Core, and come with 2 GB DDR 3 RAM, a 160 GB Hard Disc, Integrated DVD RW, Integrated Wireless Facility and a minimum backup of 2 hours. The Netbooks, powered by the Intel Atom N455@1.66 GHz come with 1 GB DDR3 RAM, a 160 GB Hard disc, integrated Wireless Facility with a backup time of up to 6 hours. Three companies were selected for the supply of Laptops for this scheme after the techno-commercial tender, which included Wipro, HCL and RP Infosystems, while the latter two qualified for the supply of Netbooks as well.   The laptop models are: HCL MES1 Wipro EGO and RPInfosystems' Chirag  PowerPlay 14 D 22. The suppliers will provide  support through a call center & web portal facility. The laptops and netbooks will be pre-loaded with IT@School Edu Ubuntu, various office packages, graphics applications, educational software etc.
Till 2010, over 7500 laptops have been provided to various schools in the Kerala as part of the “ICT in Schools” scheme. This year 8000 Laptops and 6000 Netbooks would be provided to the schools in the state.
This scheme would benefit all Head Masters / Principals and Teachers from the Government Schools and Aided Schools in the State who wish to buy a laptop/ netbook to fuel ICT enabled education. This scheme would be open to 50,000 teachers on a first come first serve basis, up to a maximum of 4000 per district. 
"There have been constant requests from the teachers as well as Teacher’s Organisations that laptops may be provided to the teachers at lower rates, so that they are well equipped to make use of ICT in their teaching process. We are sure that this new scheme of providing laptops/netbooks to teachers would create new waves in the educational scenario of the State”, says K.Anvar Sadath, Executive Director, IT@School Project.  Jan 9 2011

  "(Electronics) Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () Since I bohugt my netbook, I've been on the hunt for the perfect small case to tote it in. Almost every case I've used has been lacking in some way, but the AmazonBasics Netbook Bag with Handle comes the closest to the perfect case for me of anything I've tried thus far. Yes, I said it comes the closest, which implies there is something missing, so I'll start with that. It's a pretty minor thing, really, which is why I think the bag still deserves 5 stars. The only thing I would change is I would add a detachable shoulder strap. It's a small detail and one easily remedied by purchasing a universal shoulder strap to it. But if it already had that feature, it would be perfect in my eyes. Let's move on to what I really appreciate about this case. First and formost, it fits my 10 Asus 1000HE very well while maintaining a small form factor that easily fits inside a larger case. The handles make it easy to pick up and run with when you want to leave the larger case behind and just tote the netbook with you. On top of that, the zippered side pocket is roomy enough to hold the power adapter for my netbook without `squishing' it. Similar cases have had pockets that were too tight and worried me that they may damage the cable if I stuffed it in them. Not only can I fit the power adapter, but I also keep a Bluetooth mouse in that pocket. The case has a small bit of padding all around, sufficiently protecting the device with just enough cushion. If you've been looking for a small netbook bag that can double as a sleeve or an easy-to-tote case on the go, the AmazonBasics Netbook Bag with Handle is for you!"
