Lifespan of an Interactive Whiteboard
We're putting together long-term spending plans for IT support and development, and we got to thinking about our interactive boards. We know the rough lifespan of the projectors, but not the boards themselves - will they last forever or should we factor their replacement into things? If so, how many years of service can we expect from a Smart board?
With that, what sort of lifespan would be reasonable to predict for a Mimio? We're considering getting these since they're roughly half the price of a Smart board, but have a lot more to go wrong in them, so may not actually represent the saving we think they do when you take a long-term view of things.
