    We ordered a 30 Monarch LapCabby and it has been a complete nightmare! It's far too heavy for a start. The wheels are too small, in fact one of the wheels collapsed on ours and was completely unusable. It was tripping the power constantly and has just proven to be a very sore topic, in terms of the burden of its responsibility. The original plan was to get teachers fetching it themselves but it is far too heavy for most of them to manage.

    It also veers towards the wall when trying to push it through the corridors.

    I didn't have a very good experience dealing with their technical team either, which consisted of 1 person.

    Let's put it this way, our teaching staff have lost complete confidence in the whole idea of a Mobile IT Suite.

    Can I just clarify that the Lapcabbies people have had problems with look like the ones in the links I posted? ie big chunky plastic handles, not thin metal handles? They changed the range a while ago.

    Yes, that's a monster, isn't it? Typically we've been talking to schools about 20 and 32 slot Bretfords, 16V, 20V and 32V (vertical slot) Lapcabbies and increasingly, Lapcabbies for mini computers, up to the 32V.

    The 32H full size one you have is one I've never seen, but physically I can see that it's twice the size of the 32V mini. Also, as it has all those internal horizontal drawers, I can understand why it's so heavy, and therefore why the casters are giving problems once you've loaded it with laptops.

    It shouldn't be happening, don't get me wrong, but if it's going to happen, that's the trolley it'll happen to! I'm going to let Monarch know about this discussion, if it's OK with you? They won't have seen it and they really ought to.

    As a provider of all the above systems I would say take a look at the Lapsafe range of products as no only are the cost effective but the build quality is superb,

    Laptop Security | Lapsafe UK | Anti-Theft Laptop Security Cabinets

    Give me a shout if you would like any info or pricing on any of the discussed products
