I have two suites to shove in around 60 + machines
The rest is all maintenance and upgrades / imaging and maybe a bit of networking .
im thinking i could get the two suites in within a day .
I done half a suite in 3 hours That included removing old equipment , shoving in new machines , Image them , upgrade ram and rejoin and install WPKG.
Would be nice to have a helper

At least I hope not....otherwise someone at Viglen will be getting a rather irate email, as it was their recommendation!!!

Our HP All-in-Ones don't have a VGA out either, we're using a USB to VGA connection for the one connected to a projector.
Haven't decided what to do this summer, as I'd actually like to have a holiday this year... Going to experiment with some software, have a look at some GPOs, readjust our profiles, but generally keep it interesting. And fix all those niggle little things that have been building up the last few terms.

i think these lenovos were the same at a guess i think someone looked and mistook a serial port (why these days) for a vga

GAH! Why haven't I noticed WPKG in the past .. that's my new thing for the day and I shall see how well it works for things .. then I could have a standard base image and not worry if all the staff don't need all the software .. etc ..

I have to wonder where the financing for all that came from?

Got a bit of a crazy Summer here, but will away for large swathes of it on honeymoon!
This Summer has been:
2 new IT suites (1 done in term time already though to help)
17 new workstations for Music
4 new Macs for Media
4 new PCs for MFL
7 new Smartboards
New backup NAS to setup
Finish deployment of Office 2010, contine W7 migration
Migrate entire IP range across to new range as we've filled the old
Deploy a repurposed set of SEN laptops
Along with the usual tidying, setup new Y12 users (Y7 done), etc etc. Just me here too
It's all good though, I like being busy and the new equipment is getting a great reaction from staff and students.

We're an Agricultural & Horticulture college (Not too hard to find out which one now!!!)

The 40 PCs were budgetted for, last year, and there looks like there could be 100+ coming, as well, as part of a consortium bid.
