Finding Free Pictures

Does anyone have any websites to share where you can get free uncopyrighted pictures to use (in a commercial setting)? My husband is looking for pictures of technology (laptops, etc) and pictures of kids and young adults in classrooms.
There are great pictures on the websites where you have to pay $300 a pop.
We've found a few free ones but I just thought I'd see if anyone else knows anything about this.

I use this one sometimes if I need a generic (free) photo.

ETA: Use the search function or click on the archive to find what you are looking for -- they have more than 1,000 photos of children, so I'm sure he can find something.

I thought most governmental pictures online are free to the public? I could be wrong.

If you have MS Office installed on your computer, you can connect to their website and download all the pics you want.

You beat me to that one. That's the only one I know of -- I also use Corbis but their images are copyrighted and you have to purchase them.

It's all free, to my knowledge. My friends have been using their images as icon stock for years.

Hmm.
