FRESNO, Calif.--(Business Wire)--
Western Blue, Northern California's most experienced IT service
and solution provider, has teamed with HP to provide Fresno Unified
School District with 7000 HP Mini-Notes.

   Fresno Unified School District is the 4th largest school district
in California and 39th largest in the nation. In addition to being the
first school district in the nation to use the new HP 2133 Mini-Note,
they also had a hand in the design of the laptops including items such
as weight, durability, screen size, and keyboard size.

   Western Blue will be providing the imaging and delivery services
to ensure that the school district receives the 7000 HP Mini-Notes in
time for the start of the school year. In addition, Western Blue will
extend the Fresno Unified School District's pricing to parents,
teachers, staff and students of Fresno Unified.

   "Western Blue's willingness to keep the prices low and offer
products like the HP Mini-Note to our staff and students at
district-level prices makes a clear statement about their commitment
to education and the character of their company," stated Kurt Madden,
CTO of Fresno Unified, "The educational impact of technology delivered
to the classroom is significant - it will literally change the way our
students learn."

   "I believe that we have a responsibility to deliver technology
solutions that improve the learning experience for students. This
partnership between Western Blue, HP and Fresno Unified School
District is an example of how 3 organizations can come together to
develop and deliver technology that will make a difference," explained
Terry Joslin, President of Western Blue.
