EVERY senior NSW public school student will get to keep a mini laptop after a new funding deal was thrashed out at yesterday's Commonwealth-state funding talks in Canberra.
Some will receive their custom-built computers, powered by a wireless broadband network, by the end of term two next year. Students will be able to keep their computers after they leave school.
The funding breakthrough came after months of bitter fighting over the Federal Government's offer of $1 billion to the states to fulfil federal Labor's election promise to give every year 9 to 12 student a computer.
Mr Rees immediately pledged that NSW would lead the country by providing 197,000 senior public school students with the specially designed teenager-friendly computers.
Half the state's public high schools would have wireless internet connections by mid-2009, he promised, signalling the start of the laptop rollout. Mr Rees told The Sun-Herald NSW would receive $200 million from the Commonwealth for computers in public schools - and offered the other states and territories the chance to join NSW in a huge computer spending spree.

"These custom-made laptops are about three-quarters the size of a regular laptop - compact enough to fit into a schoolbag or a locker but powerful enough to support all the IT needs of our high school students.
"We can deliver the digital revolution by putting wireless networks in every public secondary school and buying a laptop for all the 197,000 students in years 9 to 12.“
As the laptops run on a wireless network, there was no need to build expensive computer labs or banks of network servers.
At a press conference with all state and territory leaders yesterday, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the extra funding for education came with strings attached.
A "new era" of public transparency in reporting was needed from schools across the country.
