Our team built the very first Power Macintosh for education.Our objective: to give educators and students unprecedent ed power, for an affordable price. Along the way, we also added a lot of education-specific features. For example, we added atilt-and-swivel monitor, adjust able for kids of different heights.We added video-out, so teachers can hook their Mac up to aprojection screen for more exciting presentations. And we added the option of video-in, which lets students capture video images and use them to put together really dynamic multimedia projects. Not long ago Ibrought the prototype Power Mac home for my daughter. The neighborhood kids all came over to use it.They turned iton, started exploring. You could just see their eyes light up.You watch that, and you realize you're really doing something right. It's something that we can all be proud of. -H.L.
