Whos a lucky boy then --> @Pyroman > "I think i need a new i7 workstation with lots of ram!"
Just had a chat with the new head, "It looks as though we're not spending enough on ICT, i've given you an extra 2 grand for this year" and hopefully a bigger budget next year!
God bless new Heads!!
I think a new machine with an i7 core, 32gb RAM, 64bit W7, SSD drive, is in order:
=D I am indeed a happy bunny! Touchscreens, roller balls, big keyboards, monitor mounts and decent PCs for all!!
hehe I was a little extravagant at the start of the year and bought one of the new 600gb Intel SSDs. No real need for big CPUs these days of excessive ram.

whats your normal budget then? i'm guessing as you are delighted that it isn't a huge amount a year!
Yeh its about 6 or 700 quid for that SSD but to be honest I've bought printers that expensive and I take my storage seriously
We have 40gb SSDs in every other machine in school so I reckon I deserve the larger one
Ouch, we just spent 16K putting us 4K over budget.
Not forgetting purchased about 60+PCs, 40+Laptops, Frog (plus all trimmings), Going to be an Academy soon as well. Add our new Wireless for a few blocks too, cost us about 15K. Money Money Money!
We also purchased 3 new servers in the last 8 months, joined the MS scheme of 10K a year for all software/licenses.
Jesus ! We spent that much!!!....... OUCH!
To say they've made a big improvement on our productivity is an understatement, plus we've stopped getting complaints about us shouting abusive language at our 6 year old pieces of junk...
From next year our ICT budget is going to be capped at 10k per year for new equipment and 1.5k a year for repairs.
400 PCs ~1000 users.
We need to replace ~200 pcs ASAP as they are 6 years old..
I don't know why I bother getting out of bed, frankly.
