Apple has passed Dell in the classroom


Tim Cook, Apple's COO, mentioned it at the Goldman Sachs Technology Investment Symposium a few days back: "We just received word on Monday that Apple surpassed Dell as the number one supplier of portables to US higher education for 2007."

I found the info on Computerworld's website and on 9to5Mac.

Impressive. I very much hope most students in the "US higher education" run Vista on their MacBooks! If not, I suggest we "invent" a program offering a bundle of Vista Ultimate or Business together with Office for Mac 2008 and a few free support calls. Most of the developer tools are already available for free under the DreamSpark program anyway.

We could call the marketing program something like

  • Flip-Flop
  • Free your Mac
  • Unleash the Mac
  • Pump up your Mac
  • Switch on your Mac
  • Microsoft Windows Vista and Office Ultimate Transformation Kit for Mac 2008

Don't hate me, one must have dreams and I am happy running Vista Enterprise and Ultimate on MacBooks!
