There are multiple levels that need to be considered from hardware, software, publishers, teachers, etc.

What would be most beneficial from a hardware manufacturing standpoint is to release products that coincide with the academic schedule. Releasing new product in June or July is often late for adoption for fall semesters taking in to consideration, delivery, imaging, etc. Please consider releasing products in April/May time frame.
