    Replacing Laptops

    We are looking at replacing departmental laptops that the pupils use, with either more laptops or something else.

    The main use of the laptops are Internet and word processing.

    We want something that can be integrated with AD.

    Ideas and pros and cons would be really useful

    Thanks in advance

    Worth checking out the tablet/laptop hybrids recently bought out my asus and gigabyte, some of them look pretty good. Windows 8 though obviously.

    Not sure of any models specifically but there's quite a few of them about now, of which 3-4 versions came out in the past week.

    Have you seen the Asus Transformer Book Trio? It comes with Windows 8 and Android.

    ASUS 1025C from Stone computers, roughly 160 each with Windows 7 Starter - if you have the correct site license you can install Windows 7 Professional and it runs very nicely.

    If its for students the above is very nice, no problem running all student software and you could upgrade the memory if you go through Novatech.
