    I must ring SCL too, I like the look of those all in one PCs, they are my prefered type of PC at the moment. Less to move around, less cables and less for the kids to fiddle with! Currently getting quotes for new PCs for 1 of my ICT suites. Hopeing to do a second one later in the year, but it depends how much quotes for revamping the servers and backend of the system come in at.

    I like the layout of your room ICT_GUY, lots of space in there which is always a plus. Unfortunitely I will be stuck with horrible benches in lines which were installed years ago, there just isn't the budget to change them.

    Mike.

    Not sure where the schools getting the money from guessing its been OK'd by the Gov's and the LEA after our OFSTED visit!

    Also replacing about 3/4 of our Projectors!

    Those All-In-One PCs look good, though my LM is wanting to go with Thin Clients for one site - not sure the load on the TS will handle it however... (30 kids using Photoshop or flash or Dreamweaver??)

    The room whilst a good size, is not really that big.

    I took the photo with my digital SLR with a fish eye lens then ran it through PSP's fisheye fixer.

    It allowed me to take a picture of the Cab from 6 inches away! Its a cool bit of kit that I borrowed (the lens), I must buy one for myself but at £200 - £400 its not going to happen this lifetime.

    Looking good there dhicks. It's good to see pictures of our PCs all set up in their intended environment

    Thanks for all of your comments guys. If anyone is looking to get quotes for any upcoming PC or server requirements then you know where to find us!

    That chassis can take a 19" panel but I'm not sure they are producing that option at the moment, I will get Dan to come back to you when I have confirmation.

    Hi Ben

    This is the response we have from the manufacturer....

    Hi Peter,

    We donít have any of the 19" units in stock at the moment

    The 19Ē panels are becoming increasingly harder to source from our supplier as they are not widescreen

    If we can get anymore of the panels then we will make the units, but until that time we only have the 17" model for distribution

    I will update you when I hear any updates

    Kind regards,


    Sorry if its not the response you were after!

    Regards

    A lot of you have asked us for pricing on the same systems that ICT_GUY has so I thought I would post the details here. They are slim-line desktop PCs with 17" widescreen monitors. If you would prefer standard 4:3 monitors then let us know and we'll sort a quote out for you. Anyway, the spec is...

    Choice of our RV77 or RV80 slim-line desktop case
    945GCM7-F Skt 775 MSI mainboard
    2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 775 1066FSB 3Mb CPU (replacing the E7200 next week)
    80Gb 7200RPM Serial ATA Hard Disk Drive
    2Gb DDR 2 RAM
    20x Black Serial-ATA DVDRW Drive
    On-board VGA, sound and Gigabit LAN
    Front USB & audio
    5 year warranty
    X-Pro multimedia keyboard & optical mouse
    17" black & silver widescreen monitor

    This is available for a price of exactly £300.00 per system. Operating system is not included so let us know what you want and we'll get a quote over to you

    I've attached images of the RV77 and the RV80 case. Both are very, very sturdy and perfect for the school environment

    If you have any queries then please get in touch!

    Regards

    @dhicks

    Nice photos. Iím in the process of planning a new ICT suite and was wondering what you have spaced the machines at? The HT wants our new suite spaced at 600mm which I thought was on the small side. Becta recommends a 1000mm spacing but I bet there are few schools with rooms that big.

    I've just finished 2 suites, one had plenty of space so it's around 1m spacing but the other one is smaller and I didn't think I'd get 30 computers in but I just about managed at 600cm. Some are slightly less but the kids are fine with it. They are up to Y7 and use stools, so that may be a factor.

    The ultra small footprint HP DC7900 with the piggyback monitor. To be honest, I'm not sure that the system size is that relevant as they all tend to be narrower than the keyboard/mouse.

    When originally asked to look at the building plans and recommend a room layout I went with Becta's spacing recommendations - and with good reason, this ICT suite is also a working art room and you can expect to have wodges of glue and bits of paper flying around the place. That fitted about 10 machines in. We changed the layout to squeeze in 16, but then when the PCs turned up we wound up with 18 in the room. Ironically, we've still only bought 10 licenses for the music software as, of course, you can only fit one MIDI keyboard per two workstations.
