The claim is that the Apple products can ultimately cut costs, but there's a lot of unanswered questions, ranging from how often rowdy fifth graders will break the screens to whether e-textbooks actually deliver any cost savings (link: http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2010/07/25/the-real-cost-of-college-textbooks/the-faux-value-of-e-textbooks). Does Apple really need the assistance in getting its products into the public’s hands?"
