Damage: laptop/power supplies
I was wondering if you guys could give me some feedback on how you handle laptops and their power supplies.
At my school, every teacher is issued with a laptop and we usually get a new batch in every summer.
The teachers seem to have no accountability for what happens to the equipment. Most of my time is taken up repairing laptops or calling Ergo (our supplier) for repair work because a screen has smashed or a dc sockets been damaged.
Power supplies are even worse, I now have two power units which I have to hide to make sure I can use them for testing/imaging, and we have no spares. We have faulty supplies come back we have to bin, always on a weekly basis.
Is this normal? Im starting to think perhaps the equipment itself isn't robust enough but maybe im grabbing at straws.
How do you guys handle these issues?
