that games not gonna happen....i didn't think the MAC software did FLASH...and PvsZ is a flash based game unless you install it and from what i know you cant install thing on the ipads unless it comes from the apple store.  and i doubt that PvsZ will be there.

 I thought PopCap released a version of PvZ for the iPhone/iPod Touch... that'll work on the iPad

If all this sounds familiar, it should. It is exactly what Republicans predicted would happen if Obamacare became law. If existing employee benefits were

Ya sure they all get iPads and Macs. But who is paying for it? The students. It is probably included in the "technology cost" or "living cost" or something like that.

If I went to that school I would sell both of them and stock up on beer.

This program is supposed to make the applicants tech savvier, but most anyone even remotely tech savvy would get the hell out of Seton Hill University as soon as they have an iPad and Macbook foisted on them. The business savvy would pawn those on eBay and get an actual computer instead.

another gimmick to attract students to private colleges.  buy a $300-400 netbook instead kids.

When did MaximumPC become MacsimumPC?

since when was the ipad the best in tech. google wave seems pretty good for collaboration i made a badass lab report with it. i think they could make this work with colab-apps and by putting the books in ebook form. i don't think the ipad is the most cost effective method.

this will have no educational value, they are just doing this to attract students and to make the school seem cool and futuristic.

 

put all the text books on an ipad or kindle, then i will be impressed

 Next, they're gonna make it mandatory that all students install the 'typing a report' screen saver on their macbooks, that way they can 'collaborate' and 'work' non stop on their iPads.

 

 

CLICK.

No it's Seton Hill in Greensburg, PA.  Was an all women's college until 2002.

Yeah, Seton Hill is not the same place as Seton Hall. I almost went to Seton Hill in 1999, when it was only co-ed in Music and Theatre. Sometimes I think I really should have gone....me and 2,100 women.  Would've been awesome.
