Palm PCs to replace laptops

UNITED STATES: An American high school has become the first to make Palm Pilots compulsory for all students in what could signal the end for heavy, expensive laptops in schools.

Several hundred pupils at Forsyth Country Day School, Lewisville, North Carolina, will be given one of the handheld computers when they return next month.
