Question Laptops in Education

Was wondering if someone can give me a start on some laptop advice. I'm very good with desktops but no clue when it comes to laptops
basically we would like to use these laptops in an education setting (students in grade 6-9) using basic programs such as MS Office / Open Office / Gimp / a number of educational programs and the internet over a network. Wireless (bluetooth) capabilities is a must.

i know dell, toshiba, HP and sony make a bunch of laptops but am not sure where to start looking. personally i'm an AMD fan but am also needing to balance money with practicality.

also am looking at some tablet PC's. any recommendations there?

I'd say your best bet would be DELL, you get discounts on bulk. Try the Inspiron 1300, 1.6Ghz Celeron, 512MB RAM, 60GB HDD, around 350! Intergrated WiFi, bluetooth etc etc, 350 without shipping and handling that is.. works out at about 400..

Tablet PC's, I have no idea as they are so expensive!

Apple do a good classroom set up if you contact them. Well worth looking at.
