Sorry about the punctuation. The case studies that have been conducted in the last 10 years. Various brain imaging techniques were used have found that legitimate cases of ADHD are accompanied by distinctly different frontal lobe synapse firing patterns. Most studies focused on MRI scans for diagnosis.
There have been countless studies that indicate that ADHD is a neurological disorder the problem is when no physical tests are used in diagnosis people can more easily get labeled as having it when it is in fact a product of the education system.
On another note some cases of ADHD do not go away after adolescence and can impact work performance and social interactions. Also, the more popular illness for students currently is autism since it is not as easily identifiable as actual ADHD.
The case was dismissed because the low end laptops were "Vista Capable" but there was also a "Premium Ready" sticker on other models. It was a case of read the fine print.
I do not agree with that it has been proven that people under orders from an authority will act against their better nature look at the Milgram experiment as an example. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment
All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
