I think in this context, what's more important than computers per se is broadband connection. The knowledge is power, and without getting connected to the rest of the world on the Internet, you do fall behind.

I've been against too much emphasis on computers in the classroom in lieu of learning the fundamentals of math, science and hands-on learning. "Learning" computers is a waste of kids' time, however, if the Intel program is as effective as it looks, and treats computers as a 'tool' vs and end in and of itself, then it may be worth a shot, but the overhead costs have to shrink dramatically.
