    @, we're looking at tweaking the Ts and Cs formally in the coming weeks to accommodate for situations whereby the charge degrades at an above average rate over the 3 years period. We'll be writing to all notebook customers once this is in place.

    32 Stone LW76TH, kids can get the keys off the keyboards. Had a few with broken screens.

    Take ages to charge. (3hrs)

    Kids will get the keys off most keyboards if they really want too. If you have an issue...surely you should take it up with your account manager? Always been quick to clear up anything we have needed.

    We just bought 60 N310's & so far (about 3 months in student use) they seem OK, no failures yet.

    Things I like: Light weight/size, screen, touchpad & buttons, Stone support (based on previous use)

    Things I don't like: No ability to disable the WiFi toggle function key , Lid flexes a bit too much for my liking, side entry power connector making them a bit to wide to have front facing in our Lap Cabby trolleys.

    Hi, what lap cabby trolleys are you using. That's what I was going to get for them.

    The Lapcabby are decent trolleys, if you need more space how about looking at the 16H or 32H Models? They have more room for storage per tray.

    We have the 16H models with the trays. The lastest ones have good cable management now compared to the older ones but the Stone NT310 are still too wide to comfortably fit front on. This has the drawback of not being able to see the charging lights so it's plug & hope.

    Ah so its the horizontal models. The lap cabby 20V has a compartment space of 480mm deep, the NT310s are 374mm wide so they should fit!

    Defo agree about the lid flexing to much

    Just an update regarding the flexing lids on these, as I suspected we have had 4 screens crack & have to be replaced.......probably the rough handling from the students but we have never had any screens go before on other brands from misuse.
    Plus point, keyboards seem to be quite resistant to students pulling keys off, only had one of those so far

    Who paid for the new screen Aleman? Was this covered under the warranty?

    We sorted then out, clearly malicious damage so didn't try & claim under warranty.
