In my school, we’re replacing some of the old Dell OptiPlex GX270’s – some work, some have hardware problems, all have big clunky CRTs, and some but not all have working printers. Allocation of that $1000 is open for discussion to all devices – laptops, tablets, iPads, traditional PCs.
I believe the school is looking at spending about 400 per computer, 150 per monitor, and 350 per printer. Assuming you have about $1000 to spend per classroom, but the main uses will be Internet Web Surfing and Video, and word processing, how would you spend that money to get the most out of it? What particular products or mix of products – traditional desktop computer/monitor setup? iPads? Tablets ? Laptops?
