    I've since been to another high school to have a look at their Bretford trolley with space for 16 notebooks and it is much easier to manoeuvre. The Network Manager there has had very few problems with it, aside from the odd time when it's tripped the power. The teachers fetch that one themselves. I would be happy to get those ones next time.

    I have had several heated discussions with a guy named John Rains at Monarch, who claims that they have won awards for design and that they've never had any complaints about their product. Either this is a lie or there's just not enough Network Managers complaining about this sort of thing. I suspect that in most cases, they may feel that they made a bad choice and that there's little point in reporting it becasue they know that they won't get anywhere. So come on guys, get on the phone to them and complain about this monstrosity.

    I am looking at a whole lot of netbooks soon and I thought the Bretfords looked great - mainly because I can actually see the teachers being able to move the thing around themselves without damaging the cabby
    So, where to get one from? I have been told that you can get them 'thrown in' with the netbooks (still dont know which ones to use), does anyone know about this or the cheapest place to get them?

    This is a bit of a Hijack, but have you found anything smaller than 10 bays Little Miss?

    We have some really small classes here (5 Students) who use the trolleys, and it seems that the other 5 on the trolleys are not being used!.

    Ok we're after a second lot of netbooks and a trolley now

    Lapcaddy is out of the question...

    Team CP i will email you soon about the "Mpods" but they usually cost too much!

    Anyone recommend the RM Minibus?
