Winona State adding more Tablet PCs

Winona State University is apparently quite happy with its Tablet PC program and with Gateway. They have announced a one year extention to their original contract which will provide 4,200 M285 Convertible Notebook Tablet PCs.

If anyone from WSU reads, we’d love to see some pictures of the students with their M28x’s, and hear some first hand reports from students using them.
