    Don't need anything, that was my list of suggested purchases that the head has approved.

    Sclonline will be contacted very pleased with the last purchase from them.

    Difficult to say without knowing a bit about your existing setup but: Spare PSU for testing if you con't already have one. Replace any CRTs with LCDs for better power consumption and less eye strain. RAM upgrades for any that are lacking and use modern ram DDR or newer. New managed core switch (if you don't already have one) to provide better managment and monitering features for the network etc. A sutible air compresser to blow out dust from the PCs and other stuff like that to get more from your existing investments.

    Do you really need a duplex printer, unless its going to someone who will use it I find most people dont know how to set up print jobs to duplex.

    That's why we force duplex as the default

    Took about 6 months of standing by the decision that duplexing is better before the IT staff backed down from the stupid argument that the exam board will not take it if it's double sided.... then again, an exam board did send a DVD back asking for it on VHS

    We can supply all of the above, we also have special pricing setup with manufacturers (HP, Dell, Smart, Lenovo, Fujitsu etc) especially for Edugeek members - so it's worth seeing what money you can save!

    If you PM, email or call me i will be more than happy to get a quote to you!

    On a more serious non-ukulele note - has anyone bought any HP6730s laptops?
    We have a laptop trolley with 6 x hp6720s in with space for 2 more laptops, so I wondered about getting 2 x HP6730s thinking they will look similar and use the same charger/adaptor so if they get mixed up it's not a problem.
