This is basic research, we should look further to check prices.
This is also worth bearing in mind when we choose the table they go on - make sure theres a part we can chain things to.
In general, we have potentially the toughtest security problem ... locking physical access and locking software access, and stopping people hijacking connections (eg bypassing server print quotas by plugging straight into the printer). Have fun!
Dorkbot - should we run a network cable up there? I think this would be very good - some of the crappier computers Infoseed has won't do well with a wireless adapter, even if we had that many ...
Tom from Infoseed is going to come past and help set up all the computers. This is good.
