Focus on creation+consumption vs consumption only

When I see stats and infographics like this, I wonder why schools would want to buy a consumption only device versus a creation machine, which also lets you consume content.  Certainly cost is an issue – but when I compare a $139 Kindle or a $499 iPad to a $399 15″ laptop, which are all over the Sunday sales circulars today, I’d certainly want the laptop for kids.
