NSW netbooks in schools

NSW seeks to build unhackable netbook network
The NSW Department of Education is using asset-tracking software, RFID tags, and BIOS-embedded filtering smarts to roll out 240,000 netbook computers into what CIO Stephen Wilson calls "the most hostile environment you can roll computers into" - the local high school.

Some really interesting stuff! The lengths to secure the machines is impressive and seems to be working well, although its only been about a month.
