Experiences of RM Widescreen Mobile one
We're looking into getting a mobile laptop trolley and some toughened laptops for our primary school. I've been researching possible options and as we have CC4 it seems that the RM Mobile one widescreen seems to be a good enough choice if we get them with the Core 2 Duo processor. I think the hardened screen and water resistant case are really useful features (we recently lost one non rm laptop to a drink of Ribena) and RM seem to have gone all out to indicate how tough it is with the you tube videos of the drop test and the car driving over them.
What do those of you who have the Mobile one think of it's battery life and display brightness? I've seen a couple of posts about dead pixels on the display but they were 12 months ago. Battery life seems to be reported as being anywhere between 2 and 7 hours from various websites - can anybody say what the battery life is like in the real world? I've also seen some posts on here that say the lid clip is a bit of a weak point.
I thought about considering other laptops, such as the Viglen Futura Durus mentioned in another post, but I'm put off as I have no idea how compatible such laptops may be with CC4.
I would be very grateful to hear any opinions on this from people who use them and from those who wouldn't touch them with a barge pole fitted with a 4ft anti-bacterial extension ;).
