    RM Ascend

    We have recently had a visit from unwelcome ‘visitors’ outside of school hours. As a result we now have around 30 RM Ascend stations [beige with blue edging on the fascias: RM part number: 0UT-470] which lack RAM and CPUs. Would these be of any use to anyone using the same machines? Let me know if you are interested.

    Thanks.

    From the RM site:

    Excellent value, general purpose PCs with a robust and secure design.
    Not too secure though eh?

    It probably means the cases have padlock functionality to prevent unauthorised case removal.

    Re: RM Ascend

    They took the RAM and CPU from each machine? In other words, a thief with a small ounce of intelligence (i.e. they even know what RAM and CPU are let alone take them out)? Is that a common thing nowadays? I guess I'm just used to it being chavs who wouldn't know a desktop PC from a laptop.

    Impressive theivery!

    I am very interested as I have lots of Ascend's here - what spec are the machines, and what CPU's did they have (i.e intel / amd?)

    Also where are you based?
