I've been asked to get quotes for 2 sets of laptops and trollies for one of my schools, after a lot of frowning and trying to dissuade smt I'm now getting quotes!
One of the ideas suggested was to use the laptops that staff currently have for the pupils and to invest in new ones for the staff. The laptops are mainly 2-3 years old, average spec. Any help with the following greatly appreciated and any more advice that may help;
Will a standard charging trolley take any make/mix of laptop?
Will a standard laptop battery suffice?
Do you use standard (as in cheap!) laptops for the pupils or try to locate ones that are more durable?
The idea is to have 2 sets of 6 to be used in 2 classrooms so will one wireless access point be enough, no roaming profiles?
I was going to set up 6 laptops in a classroom the other night and get people to logon print etc to test current access point, but now working at slight disadvantage having (to quote my husband), pulled a fetlock and trying to sort this out at home whilst trying to master a pair of crutches!
