In this case the laptops are assigned to 7th and 8th graders as part of
the state 1-to-1 laptop program....so therefore they are not available. 
It'd be like asking folks for their personal laptops to fill the
void....all those laptops have the kids stuff and their own
modifications...etc. on them.  

I am encouraged to hear about the Casetronics system...that was the one
I'm looking at where I "might" add a slim CD drive to.
