what's a proper PC and why not if people like my brother are using a tablet rather than their PC.

What about teh millions of PCs sitting on hotel reception and all they do is log who;'s currenty
occupying the rooms.
What about the 10 tabs we brought so we could registar the students in a classroon rathe rthan
having to send them all in a qute to a central room to registar their attendance. Is it really
better to have ONE PC or 10 tabs to do the same job. The tabs were cheap £50 kindles, so far
cheaper than having ONE PC operated by ONE person with 400 odd students queueing for registaration.

Phones are phones, PCs are PCs.
It is far easier for us to get the students to photograph their hardware with a phone than with a PC.
When the studetsn come and ask me for device X or Y they show me on their phone what sot of thing
they are looking for I don;t want them brining in their desktop PC into the lab.
