Submission + - School regrets swapping laptops for iPads (

Barence writes: "PC Pro has a story of a school that swapped all its staff laptops for iPads — and now wants to switch them back. "Most staff are IT illiterate and jumped at the chance of exchanging their laptop for an iPad," a teacher from the school told PC Pro. Now, however: "the staff room is full of regret."

Difficulties editing old Word and PowerPoint documents, transferring work to and from the device without USB sticks, and problems with projecting the iPad's display to the classroom — bizarrely, using an Apple TV — have led to staff once again reaching for their Windows laptops."
