Question Laptops in Education

Was wondering if someone can give me a start on some laptop advice. I'm very good with desktops but no clue when it comes to laptops
basically we would like to use these laptops in an education setting (students in grade 6-9) using basic programs such as MS Office / Open Office / Gimp / a number of educational programs and the internet over a network. Wireless (bluetooth) capabilities is a must.

i know dell, toshiba, HP and sony make a bunch of laptops but am not sure where to start looking. personally i'm an AMD fan but am also needing to balance money with practicality.

also am looking at some tablet PC's. any recommendations there?

acer travel mate I bought mine from my school which is felsted boarding school Im not sure if they will help you with suggestions though but you could try contacting them. But my acer is great its 3 years old and bit rough round the edges but can do anything really except hardcore games which helps in a educational setting i suppose.
