    Because not everyone installs everything on their SOE images and only want it on certain locations or to save space in their images.

    Because not all schools use the teachers laptops for the smart boards and teachers don't/aren't always at the same system so they wont always have the application.

    We're probably 95% promethean and the other smart boards.

    I've never been called to a problem with the smart boards, they just work!

    Promethean on the otherhand.....

    I have one school with Smart, one with Promethean. The Smart boards rarely cause trouble---but the prometheans - forever going wrong and losing their grip on anything.
    Smart every time!

    I've installed the SMART software on all teacher computers here, regardless of if they have an iwb or not. Some of my teachers use the software with a wireless mouse or graphics tablet, thus they are able to share resources with their iwb colleagues.

    We have gone completly SMART here as well. Their tech support were fantastic both times I've needed to use them. Its also handy that they are USB powered meaning one less power socket wherever you have them installed.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback.

    Decided to go with SMART. Our four boards just came in yesterday and I was able to unpack, install it fairly quickly with the mobile stand. As for the software and drivers, it installed with no problems. Haven't got any errors yet with the software. One teacher with experience is using it already. The kids love it!

    I'll say I'm happy so far from the technical view.
