Re: I wonder if students using Chromebook in school is bad for Apple?

Apple understands service lock-in more than most. The US school and college market have traditionally been seen as gateways for future business decisions hence the plethora of cheap licences from MS, Oracle, et al. It's also structured nicely for advantageous tax write-offs: where do you think the rebates come from.

That said it's not that big a market but Google's apparent success has obviously shaken Cupertino a bit and competition is good.
