Australian teachers using Macs are crying out for help from Apple Australia, as local education chiefs are seemingly working to remove Macs from the education system there.

Apple is the number one supplier of notebooks to Australia's education market, according to IDC figures for the fourth quarter of 2005, AMUG claims.
