Irish school's attempt to replace books with HP tablets results in 'unmitigated disaster'


Major technical problems have forced an Irish secondary school to migrate its students back to paper books after their deployment of HP ElitePad tablets became what the school's principal termed "an unmitigated disaster."

Mountrath principal Margin Gleeson wrote in a letter to parents that the "HP Elite Pad has proved to be an unmitigated disaster" and that a return to paper books — at the school's expense — was necessary to "ensure stability and continuity of education."
