Oi, high school comps SUCK. Sure, their specs are up there, but their limited set of applications (Windows 98, Word 97, Netscape 4) doesn't let you do ANYTHING. I don't even know why they bother upgrading it each year, 2ghz is not needed to run Win98! I know that I can't install Kazaa and crap like that, but I don't want to. I want to temporarily install programs like my own copy of Macromedia Flash, or Photoshop. If I'm doing a project, I want to use these applications, and I simply CAN'T on the computers at school.
BTW, colleges probably won't do web filtering, as most college students are older than 18, so there won't be much of a problem
