Macintosh or PC? Like many computer users, the St. Johns County School District now has its preference.
After lengthy discussion and research, the district struck a deal with Dell Computers to have the company equip its three new elementary schools with PCs because district staff said the company provides an excellent learning tool for students at a fantastic price.
"We're just excited to have the technology," said Paul Goricki, principal for Hickory Creek Elementary School. "I think that for most of the teachers, they expressed preference for Apples over the Dells, and they did that because of familiarity."
