    How many laptops do you manage?

    Just a bit of a quick poll to find out how many laptops you actively manage. This should include staff (allocated) laptops as well.
    If you have any other wirelessly connected devices such as PDAs that would be helpful if you could post the amount seperately.

    100, though this will soon decrease to 36 as we move teachers to desktops for SIMS.

    Not many staff have them here. They all use desktops at work. If they want to work from home they use personal computers and make a secure terminal service session into school.

    Some staff who do not have the internet or some that go to different schools have a laptop. We have a few to loan out so staff should they need them. I would say about 20 of them in total.

    We are slowing moving away from laptops - currently have 100-150 ish but after the summer this number should halve as we are increasing the amount of desktops up to around 1100.

    Every teacher has a laptop + we've currently got 16 netbooks for students (1 laptop trolley). Possibly looking at additional laptops for students in the future

    Yes far too many here - wish we could get rid of staff laptops and put a staff station in each room.
