Although the price-point seems a little high for educational purposes, given that it's likely that many schools would have to overhaul their network infrastructure to deliver PoE. However it could be a very good thing for the business market. The company I work for employs around 140,000 people in the UK and the vast majority of them (I'd say over 70-80%) all use a computer. We also use a company-wide IP Telephony system that uses PoE; we therefore already have most of the infrastructure to make use of a system like this. The energy savings alone would be vast (albeit rather offset by the initial investment cost) - instead of two mains outlets used by each machine, it'd use only one PoE port and require vastly less energy. Plus it'd be a good thing for sysadmins running system-wide updates - not everyone leaves their machine on like they're supposed to, and remote wake-up won't work if a PC is powered off.
